A study of reaction kinetics and removal efficiency of a family of ruthenium (Ru)-based olefin metathesis catalysts containing ethylene-glycol-oligomer-tethered N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands has been carried out, with a focus on variation of ethylene glycol oligomer length. The length of ethylene glycol oligomer was precisely defined by sequential addition of repeating units. Due to the dual solubility of ethylene glycol oligomer, the produced catalyst was highly soluble in both aqueous and organic solvents (dichloromethane). In aqueous solution, the polarity increase with longer ethylene glycol oligomers enhanced the reactivity in homogeneous solution. The length of ethylene glycol oligomer did not significantly affect olefin metathesis rate in organic solution. Yet the removal efficiency of catalyst strongly relies on the length of ethylene glycol oligomer. Longer ethylene glycol oligomer demonstrated better catalyst removal efficiency. The tested catalyst removal method was aqueous extraction from organic solution using its higher water solubility property compared to its lower organic solvent (dichloromethane) solubility property. The results obtained from the aqueous extraction catalyst removal method demonstrated similar and/or better removal rates compared to previously reported host-guest catalyst removal methods.

A colorless, odorless, viscous dihydroxy alcohol. It has a sweet taste, but is poisonous if ingested. Ethylene glycol is the most important glycol commercially available and is manufactured on a large scale in the United States. It is used as an antifreeze and coolant, in hydraulic fluids, and in the manufacture of low-freezing dynamites and resins.
Polyester polymers formed from terephthalic acid or its esters and ethylene glycol. They can be formed into tapes, films or pulled into fibers that are pressed into meshes or woven into fabrics.
Ophthalmic solutions that include LUBRICANTS and WETTING AGENTS such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL; HYPROMELLOSE; GLYCEROL; PROPYLENE GLYCOL. They are used to treat conditions caused by deficient tear production such as DRY EYE SYNDROME.
An ethylene compound with two hydroxy groups (-OH) located on adjacent carbons. They are viscous and colorless liquids. Some are used as anesthetics or hypnotics. However, the class is best known for their use as a coolant or antifreeze.
