No comments Catalysis chemist unravelled how olefin metathesis reactions took place paving the way for more efficient syntheses Yves Chauvinjoint winner of the chemistry Nobel prizehas died aged Chauvin received the prize for his contribution to organic synthesis, providing a detailed mechanism for how metathesis reactions are catalysed, which then enabled co-recipients Richard Schrock and Robert Grubbs to go on to create better catalysts.
Chauvin was born in in Menin, on the border between Belgium and France. After a brief stint in industry he went to work for the French Institute of Petroleum IFP inresearching new processes for the petrochemical industry.
Chauvin was interested in homogeneous catalysis using transition metals, and developed two new industrial processes — Dimersol, the dimerisation of propene to isohexenes, which are used as petrol additives, and Alphabutol, which transforms ethene to 1-butene used in polythene production.
But it was his work on olefin metathesis that would eventually win him the Nobel prize.
In Chauvin published a mechanism for how the reactants interact with catalysts. Chauvin stayed at the IFP throughout his career becoming research director in and honorary research director after his retirement in He was elected a member of the French Academy of Sciences in ISOM21 - International Symposium on Olefin Metathesis and Related Chemistry, Graz, AUSTRIA.
