Ruthenium-based olefin metathesis catalysts are to be deposited onto surfaces together with switchable polymers to enable switched olefin metathesis. In the present context switching refers to the modulation polymer layer in which the catalyst is embedded. Parts of the project will be carried out in close collaboration with project A1.
