Efficient in macrocyclization.
Comparison with competing products:
- 50% higher TON in CM with acrylonitrile when compared to the best NHC-based catalyst.
- Tenfold higher TON in macrocyclic RCM of 16-membered lactone than Hoveyda-Grubbs and Grubbs 2nd gen. catalysts
- equivalent of UltraNitroCat, which may give different results depending on reaction conditions
