Ruthenium-Catalyzed Furan- and Pyrrole-Ring Formation

Pp. 36-80 (45)

Victorio Cadierno and Pascale Crochet


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