Abstract

Nine biotinylated Grubbs–Hoveyda and Grubbs-type metathesis catalysts were synthesized and evaluated in ring closing metathesis reactions of N-tosyl diallylamine and 5-hydroxy-2-vinylphenyl acrylate. Their catalytic activity in organic- and aqueous solvents was compared with the second generation Grubbs–Hoveyda catalyst. The position of the biotin-moiety on the N-heterocyclic carbene was found to critically influence the catalytic activity of the corresponding ruthenium-based catalysts.
