We have found that addition donor ligands such as 1-methylimidazole or 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP) are capable of completely inhibiting the metathesis reaction, such as RCM and ROMP, when at least two equivalents are used to completely produce a six-coordinate species of low activity.
However, in recent research described during the talk, which was performed together with fellow graduate student Eric Rivard, MCIC, in Ian Manners, FCIC's, group at the University of Toronto, the presence of a strong donor ligand (L) such as 4-dimethylaminopyridine has been found to allow the labile cations to be isolated and fully characterized (Scheme 3).
