Abstract

Easy as π: An unusual indenylidene to η5- indenyl rearrangement of a ruthenium catalyst has been observed. The resulting complex is the formal decomposition product of an olefin metathesis precatalyst that displays exceptional activity in the racemization of chiral alcohols at very low catalyst loadings.
