Diene metathesis, which is also known as an olefin metathesis, has been very important for the development of synthetic strategies in organic chemistry since it's inception in the 1950s. The olefin metathesis reaction is when two alkenes exchange the carbons on their double bonds, thus producing two new carbonDcarbon double bonds.
