Carbonyl-olefin metathesis reaction is an attractive method to construct new carbon-carbon double bonds from carbonyl compounds and olefins. Nevertheless, a limited number of carbonyl-olefin metathesis has been reported. In addition, they required photoirradiation or stoichiometric amount of activators such as transition metal complexes, Brønsted acids, and Lewis acids. Oligomerization of substrates or reverse reaction of products often occurred. Since 2012, efficient and catalytic carbonyl-olefin metathesis reactions have emerged. This review highlights recent advances about catalytic carbonyl-olefin metathesis reactions.
