Cyclic molecules are common as reagents or as intermediates along complex chemical reaction pathways. This makes the ability to effectively and efficiently open rings through reactions, or convert the cyclic reagents into linear chains, highly useful in the chemical industry. Regardless of the size of your ring, you need to be confident your catalyst is capable of performing the reaction.
Whether your ring-opening reaction proceeds via ring-opening metathesis or another reaction, we can supply you with the catalyst you need to succeed. Our Umicore Grubbs Catalysts® are the best in class in performing metathesis reactions. Get in touch to discuss the various reactions we can help facilitate and find out how we can create the chemical reaction you need to succeed.
