External metathesis control: The ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) control of N-donor containing, Ru-based Grubbs-type olefin metathesis catalysts and mixtures can be externally influenced by the addition of H3PO4 (see picture). Evidence is provided that the initiation of hexacoordinate third-generation catalysts depends on an associative step.
