Ring-closing metathesis is a variant of the olefin metathesis reaction in which alkylidene moieties are exchanged to form a ring the most common catalysts for this. Toluene), but also in protic organic solvents, water , and fluorinated solvents  testing various cat-alysts in a specific reaction is time-consuming, but there. Olefin metathesis is an organic reaction that entails the redistribution of which proved to be less sensitive to oxygen and water and therefore more functional.
