Ring-closing metathesis, or rcm, mechanism general mechanism rcm undergoes a similar mechanistic pathway as other olefin metathesis reactions, such as cross metathesis (cm), ring-opening metathesis polymerization (romp), and acyclic diene metathesis (admet. Ring opening metathesis can employ an excess of a second alkene (for example ethene), but can also be conducted as a homo- or co-polymerization reaction the driving force in this case is the loss of ring strain.

Ring opening metathesis polymerization (romp), a term coined by caltech chemist robert grubbs, is a variant of the olefin metathesis reaction the reaction uses strained cyclic olefins to produce stereoregular and monodisperse polymers and co-polymers.
Mechanism of ring closing metathesis the key intermediate is a metallacyclobutane, which can undergo cycloreversion either towards products or back to starting materials when the olefins of the substrate are terminal, the driving force for rcm is the removal of ethene from the reaction mixture. Ring-closing metathesis, or rcm, is a widely used variation of olefin metathesis in organic chemistry for the synthesis of various unsaturated rings via the intramolecular metathesis of two terminal alkenes, which forms the cycloalkene as the e-or z-isomers and volatile ethylene.
Frontal ring-opening metathesis polymerization (fromp) is a variation of romp in which it is a latent polymerization system that react fast, only upon ignition one example of this system is the fromp of dicyclopentadienewith a grubbs catalysts initiated by heat. Controlling ring-opening metathesis polymerization activity and mechanism through choice of anionic ligand j am chem soc , 110 ( 1988 ) , pp 4964 - 4977 [22. General information ring opening metathesis polymerization (romp), a term coined by caltech chemist robert grubbs, is a variant of the olefin metathesis reactionthe reaction uses strained cyclic olefins to produce stereoregular and monodisperse polymers and co-polymers mechanism the mechanism of the romp reaction involves an alkylidene catalyst and is identical to the mechanism of olefin.

When the same chemical process takes place with a cyclic olefin, a ring opening reaction takes place if the cyclic olefin is sufficiently strained, the ring opening releases energy, and this is the driving force for the polymerization of the olefin ()this is called ring opening metathesis polymerization (romp), and is the subject of this review.
