In this issue of Chem Catalysis, Shi and co-workers describe the synthesis and olefin metathesis activity of ruthenium complexes with chelating benzylidene-triazole ligands. Catalyst decomposition is slow at up to 80°C, which enables challenging catalytic reactions, including cross-metathesis of trans-alkenes and macrocycle synthesis by dynamic covalent chemistry.
