Chelating carbene ligand precursor, isomeric complexes containing thereof and their use as olefin metathesis catalyst

  • Summary:

    The present invention relates to olefin metathesis catalyst, which is activated upon heating or light irradiation. The catalyst is particularly effective for the ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP).

  • Inventors:
    Volodymyr Sashuk
  • Advantages / Innovative aspects:
    • The catalyst is very stable both in solution and in the solid,
    • The catalyst is virtually inactive at room temperature (conversion of monomer to polymer is less than 0.2% after two weeks),
    • A high activation temperature of the catalyst (ca. 100°C),
    • A possible activation under UV irradiation.
  • Keywords:
    Latent ruthenium catalyst, olefin metathesis
  • Field:
  • Usage:

    Polymers, patterning.

  • State of the progress:
    stage of research
  • Intellectual property rights:
    Patent application in Poland, possibility to extend protection abroad
