    Abstract

    Olefin metathesis has emerged as an indispensable means to create complex natural products by the virtue of its powerful carboncarbon bond-forming ability, compatibility with a range of functional groups, and ready availability of highly reactive ruthenium carbene catalysts. Furthermore, Grubbs-type ruthenium carbene complexes originally developed for olefin metathesis reactions also mediate a variety of non-metathetic reactions and found their use in tandem metathetic/nonmetathetic processes. This account summarizes our recent efforts on total synthesis of oxacyclic natural products by means of ruthenium carbene-catalyzed reactions.
