Scholarcy highlights

  • Ene–yne: A ruthenium-catalyzed ene–yne cross-metathesis reaction is performed with stoichiometric amounts of terminal olefins and alkynes
  • The alkyne is added to the reaction mixture continuously
  • Ruthenium-catalyzed ene–yne cross-metathesis is performed with stoichiometric proportions of terminal olefins and alkynes
  • This is made possible by the continuous addition of the alkyne to the reaction mixture
  • The efficient conversion of renewable unsaturated fatty esters from bioresources into valuable conjugated 1,3-dienes of interest for further transformations is performed using this technique under mild conditions in dimethyl carbonate; an ecofriendly solvent
