Ruthenium-catalyzed hydrogen generation from glycerol and selective synthesis of lactic acid
An efficient hydrogen generation from glycerol and selective synthesis of lactic acid (67%) using pincer-type ruthenium complexes is described. Analysis of the products from glycerol dehydrogenationExpand
Cationic ruthenium allenylidene complexes as a new class of performing catalysts for ring closing metathesis
Cationic allenylidene ruthenium complexes [Ru CCCR2(L)(Cl)(arene)]PF6 (L = PCy3, PPri3), easily prepared from RuCl2(L)(p-cymene), prop-2-yn-1-ol and NaPF6, are found to be excellent catalystExpand
Ruthenium–alkylidene catalysed cross-metathesis of fatty acid derivatives with acrylonitrile and methyl acrylate: a key step toward long-chain bifunctional and amino acid compounds
The ruthenium catalysed cross-metathesis of fatty-esters arising from plant oils with acrylonitrile is presented. The resulting linear nitrile ester products have potential as new intermediates forExpand

Ethenolysis of methyl oleate in room-temperature ionic liquids.
The efficient and selective cross-metathesis of methyl oleate with ethylene was achieved under mild conditions with ruthenium-alkylidene catalysts in toluene and room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) to give two important chemical intermediates, 1-decene and methyl 9-decenoate, without double-bond migration.

Fluorine-containing α-alkynyl amino esters and access to a new family of 3,4-dehydroproline analogues
New α-alkynyl, α-CF3 amino esters have been prepared from electrophilic imines and used to produce 3-alkenyl-3,4-dehydroproline derivatives, ia enyne metathesis with the precatalystExpand
The versatility of molecular ruthenium catalyst RuCl(COD)(C5Me5)
Abstract This review reports the contribution of the catalyst precursor RuCl(COD)C5Me5, and of the Rennes team, for the selective transformation of alkynes to generate high value chemicals with atomExpand
Cp*RuCl(COD) in catalysis: A unique role in the addition of diazoalkane carbene to alkynes
The catalytic transformations of functional alkynes with diazoalkanes in the presence of the catalyst precursor RuCl(COD)Cp* are presented. They show the unique role played by the Ru(X)Cp* moiety inExpand
