The heat is on: A new [3+2] cycloaddition/cycloreversion strategy allows for catalytic and thermally allowed carbonyl–olefin metathesis (see scheme). This strategy opens opportunities for new developments in the field of carbonyl–olefin metathesis, which traditionally relied on stoichiometric amounts of transition-metal reagents or photochemical promotion.
