Abstract:

The utility of ruthenium-based catalysts in the construction of furan and pyrrole derivatives is reviewed. Among others, synthetic approaches involving cycloisomerization, ring-closing metathesis and multicomponent reactions are discussed.

Keywords: Ruthenium complexes, catalysis, furans, pyrroles, cyclizations, ring-closing metathesis, multicomponent reactions
