Abstract:
Metathesis of cyclic alkanes catalyzed by the new surface complex [(ΞSiO)W(Me)5] affords a wide distribution of cyclic and macrocyclic alkanes. The major products with the formula CnH2n are the result of either a ring contraction or ring expansion of cyclooctane leading to lower unsubstituted cyclic alkanes (5≤n≤7) and to an unprecedented distribution of unsubstituted macrocyclic alkanes (12≤n≤40), respectively, identified by GC/MS and by NMR spectroscopies.

The authors thank Dr. Raju Dey for his contribution for the synthesis of the silica-supported W catalyst. We are also grateful to Dr. Geert Van Biesen (CREAIT, from University Newfoundland, Canada) for his help for the isolation of the two cyclic alkanes (cC<INF>17</INF> and cC<INF>21</INF>). This work was supported by funds from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.
