The availability of catalysts with desirable features is one of the key requirements for their practical use. All alkyne metathesis catalysts known to date belong to either ill-defined [the so-called Mortreux system consisting of hexacarbonylmolybdenum(0) and various phenols] or well-defined single-component catalyst systems (Schrock-type complexes). The latter have played a major role in the development of new air-stable yet alkyne-metathesis-active catalysts. Well-defined single-component catalysts are generally viewed as variants of Schrock-type alkylidyne complexes of high oxidation state molybdenum (e.g., 1 and 555560) or tungsten (e.g., 8 and 554) (Scheme 120). Except for the Mortreux system, all classical Schrock-type alkylidyne complexes are highly moisture- and oxygen-sensitive, and molybdenum complex 555 is even sensitive to molecular nitrogen. The first well-defined and widely used alkyne metathesis catalyst is Schrock-type tungsten complex 8 containing bulky alkoxide ligands that prevent or slow down bimolecular decomposition of the alkylidyne intermediates in the catalytic cycle.[‌200‌] Other bulky ligands having alkyl, thiolate, and amide groups do not show much improvement in catalyst activity.[‌201‌] Significant improvements of the performance of Schrock-type complexes have emerged mainly due to the systematic studies of Fürstner and coworkers, and their broad range of applications have included complex natural product synthesis.[‌202‌]
