Supported Ru olefin metathesis catalysts via a thiolate tether

Author affiliations


Thiolate-coordinated ruthenium alkylidene complexes can give high Z-selectivity and stereoretentivity in olefin metathesis. To investigate their applicability as heterogeneous catalysts, we have successfully developed a methodology to easily immobilize prototype ruthenium alkylidenes onto hybrid mesostructured silica via a thiolate tether. In contrast, the preparation of the corresponding molecular complexes appeared very challenging in solution. These prototype supported complexes contain small thiolates but still, they are slightly more Z-selective than their molecular analogues. These results open the door to more active and selective heterogeneous catalysts by supporting more advanced thiolate Ru-complexes.
