The most widely used olefin metathesis catalysts are the grubbs ruthenium-based catalysts (see figure 2), for which the arguably most serious limitation to the application of these catalysts is the lack of control of the ratio with which the two isomers (cis (z) and trans (e)) of disubstituted olefin products.

Olefin metathesis is an organic reaction that entails the redistribution of fragments of alkenes (olefins) by the scission and regeneration of carbon-carbon double bonds because of the relative simplicity of olefin metathesis. Olefin metathesis allows the exchange of substituents between different olefins - a transalkylidenation the second generation grubbs catalysts are even more stable and more active than the original versions some of these are depicted.
