The highly electrophilic dicationic Ru–alkylidene complex [Ru(DMF)3(1,3-dimesitylimidazolin-2-ylidene)(=CH—2—(2—PrO)—C6H4)]2+(BF4)2] was used in the ring-opening metathesis polymerization as well as in the cyclopolymerization of 1,6-heptadiynes. In the presence of ionic monomers containing coordinating anions, a rapid change in the nature of the propagating alkylidene from a dicationic to a neutral occurs.
