Description

  • excellent for CM of internal, type 1 olefins 
  • very good for RCM with sterically non-demanding substrates leading to small/medium rings 
  • good for CM with electron deficient partners 
  • Note: Suitable for reaction in green solvents without degassing and drying 
  • Fast initiating catalyst at ambient temperature  
  • Similar properties to  GreenCat, reaction results may vary depending on conditions or different substrate
