Catalytic olefin metathesis has quickly emerged as one of the most often-used transformations in modern chemical synthesis. One class of catalysts that has led the way to this significant development are the electrochemically produced tungsten- and molybdenum-based species. In this review, some of the discovery, developments and applications of electrochemically generated tungsten- and molybdenum-based metathesis catalysts are outlined.
