Abstract

Ruthenium-catalyzed self- and cross-metathesis, with acrolein, acrylonitrile, acrylic acid and methylacrylate, of the bioresource undecylenic aldehyde leads to a variety of unsaturated ω-functional aldehydes. Tandem olefin metathesis/hydrogenation catalytic reactions afford saturated C20 and C12 diols in good yields.
