One area of current research concerns the design and development of novel olefin metathesis catalysts these catalysts have had a tremendous impact on synthetic chemistry over the past decade this fact was recognized with the awarding of the 2005 nobel prize in chemistry to chauvin, grubbs and schrock for the. In 2005, dr robert grubbs, dr richard schrok and dr yves chauvin were awarded the nobel prize in chemistry for olefin metathesis the discovery has seen many applications since the 90s, thanks to its selectivity and its ability to make complex chemical reactions easy olefin metathesis entails the redistribution of. Olefin metathesis: the early days (nobel lecture) mechanism by yves chauvin and the targeted development of transition-metal-based metathesis catalysts by richard schrock and robert grubbs the winners of the chemistry nobel prize in 2005 present first-hand accounts of these developments. Professor richard r schrock relaxes following a press conference at mit held after he learned he won the 2005 nobel prize in chemistry before these catalysts there was no way to do [the metathesis reaction] simply, schrock explained at a press conference held at mit this morning some of the.
Richard schrock shared the 2005 chemistry prize with fellow american robert grubbs and yves chauvin of france for 'the development of the metathesis method in organic synthesis' metathesis (lit at du pont, schrock fi rst came across olefin metathesis, and began to consider the possibilities of a catalyst in 1975 he.

Robert howard grubbs (born february 27, 1942) is an american chemist and the victor and elizabeth atkins professor of chemistry at the california institute of technology in southern california he was a co-recipient of the 2005 nobel prize in chemistry for his work on olefin metathesis he is a co-founder of materia ,. Results 17 - 30 metathesis, a recently developed synthetic chemical methodology, has widespread applications in industries in large- scale production of organic compounds, pharmaceutical products and polymeric materials keywords: catalysis, drugs, mechanism, olefin-metathesis, polymer introduction nobel prize in.
2005 nobel prize in chemistry development of the olefin metathesis method in organic synthesis by charles p casey the 2005 nobel prize in chemistry was awarded to yves chauvin of the institut français du pétrole, robert h grubbs of caltech, and richard r schrock of mit “for development. Of olefin metathesis to the art of chemical synthesis led to the awarding of the 2005 nobel prize in chemistry to yves chauvin, robert h grubbs, and richard r schrock  the goal of the special issue of molecules entitled “olefin metathesis” was to discuss recent developments in all fields of metathesis. Olefin metathesis is an organic reaction that entails the redistribution of fragments of alkenes (olefins) by the scission and regeneration of carbon-carbon double bonds because of the relative simplicity of olefin metathesis, it often creates fewer undesired by-products and hazardous wastes than alternative organic reactions.
