Abstract

A minor species, generated by C-H activation of the methyl group of CH 3ReO3 on reactive surface sites of alumina, is the active site of alumina-supported CH3ReO3, a highly active olefin metathesis catalyst, while the major species, formed by coordination of CH 3ReO3 at the same sites, is inactive (see scheme; O s denotes the O atoms of the alumina surface). (Chemical Equation Presented).
