The heat is on: A new [3+2] cycloaddition/cycloreversion strategy allows for catalytic and thermally allowed carbonyl-olefin metathesis (see scheme). This strategy opens opportunities for new developments in the field of carbonyl-olefin metathesis, which traditionally relied on stoichiometric amounts of transition-metal reagents or photochemical promotion.
