Suits you sir! Well-defined, active and reusable Ru-NHC heterogeneous catalysts for metathesis of functionalized olefins were obtained by i) designing a tailored hybrid mesostructured material that contains regularly distributed imidazolium units and ii) the subsequent transformation of such imidazolium moieties into Ru-NHC active sites.
