Tungsten and Molybdenum based Catalysts

The images below – from publications by Richard Schrock and Amir Hoveyda – illustrate examples of the catalysts behind XiMo’s technology. The first image shows a tungsten based catalyst and the second portrays a molybdenum based catalyst. The images on the left of each frame represent the catalyst with the hydrogen atoms deleted to allow for a better view. The images in the upper right hand corner of the frames depict a space filling model, also without hydrogen atoms.
