Abstract

Metathesis of linear alkanes catalyzed by the well-defined precursor ([triple bond, length as m-dash]Si–O–WMe5) affords a wide distribution of linear alkanes from methane up to triacontane. Olefin metathesis using the same catalyst and under the same reaction conditions gives a very striking different distribution of linear α-olefins and internal olefins. This shows that olefin and alkane metathesis processes occur via very different pathways.
