Ru 'n' DMC: A series of ruthenium-catalyzed olefin metathesis transformations were performed in the eco-friendly solvent dimethyl carbonate (DMC), and it was demonstrated that this solvent can be used as a substitute to dichloromethane or aromatic solvents. The ethenolysis of methyl oleate using the first-generation Hoveyda catalyst was also performed in DMC, where similar conversions were observed to those in toluene (82 vs 88 %).
