Investigations of the effect of catalyst loading on cross-metathesis reaction

ID: 1993
School: School of Science, Technology, Accessibility, Mathematics, and Public Health
Program: Chemistry
Status: Ongoing
Start date: October 2012
End Date: December 2020


Investigations were carried out using various cross-metathesis catalysts to determine effect of catalyst concentration on the reaction. This has a potential application in chemical, polymer, and pharmaceutical industries, as it could potentially lead to reduced cost of production.
