Olefin metathesis grubbs reaction olefin metathesis allows the exchange of substituents between different olefins - a transalkylidenation this reaction was first used in petroleum reformation for the synthesis of higher olefins (shell higher olefin process - shop), with nickel catalysts under high pressure and high temperatures. A salt metathesis reaction (from the greek μετάθεσις, transposition), sometimes called a double replacement reaction or double displacement reaction, is a chemical process involving the exchange of bonds between two reacting chemical species, which results in the creation of products with similar or identical bonding affiliations.

Using metathesis technology to process refinery-based c4 feedstocks can maximise propylene the economic advantages of flow schemes using alpha-olefins in the metathesis reaction with c4 olefins are discussed. Olefin metathesis is a chemical reaction in which two carbon-carbon double bonds (olefins) come together and exchange with one another, forming new.
Olefin metathesis is a popular and useful reaction in the presence of certain transition-metal compounds, including various metal carbenes, olefins exchange the groups around the double bonds, resulting in several outcomes: straight swapping of groups between two acyclic olefins (cross-metathesis. Alkene metathesis, also known as olefin metathesis, was the subject of the 2005 nobel prize in chemistry the reaction involves the rearrangement of carbon-carbon double bonds, through the use of metal catalysts, such as the grubbs ru catalyst, schrock w, mo, and re catalysts, and titanocene-based catalysts.
