Abstract

In olefin metathesis, the designing of better catalysts has been the key to the success of its utility. Throughout the history of olefin metathesis research, the development of new and improved catalysts has brought new applications and new strucures that are accessible by olefin metathesis routes. With the developmet of highly active catalyst containing an N-heterocyclic carbene, the field of olefin metathesis is currently in a period of renaissance opening up the versatile synthesis of both small orgainc molecules to macromolecules. Following four chapters describle recent applications towards the synthesis of molecules with various sizes.
