Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(Chemical Equation Presented) Two ring or not to ring: Novel diruthenium olefin metathesis catalysts show a tendency to avoid oligomerization and favor cyclic dimerization when the distances between the ruthenium centers and between the diene extremities match (see scheme).
