Catalysts and Methods for Synthesis of Organofluorine Compounds by Stereoselective Olefin Metathesis

Abstract.  Development of new catalysts and methods for synthesis of organofluorine compounds through kinetically controlled stereoselective olefin metathesis reactions will be presented. Some of the key features of the catalyst structure that are responsible for the unique levels of reactivity and selectivity observed as well as representative applications in preparation of biologically active compounds will be highlighted.
