Although olefin metathesis has a rich history dating to the 1950s and 1960s, the one particular metathesis mode, Acyclic Diene METathesis (ADMET), has more recent historical roots. The similarity to other metathesis modes that rely on double-bond substituent interchange diverges within ADMET chemistry, an observation that is lesser known. The story regarding the discovery of ADMET chemistry is divulged here.
