Although Schrock-type tungsten alkylidyne complexes react with inorganic oxides with formation of surface tungsten alkylidene species, the high catalytic activity of W(CCMe3)(CH2CMe3) 3/Nb2O5 for the metathesis of Z-pent-2-ene does not seem to be correlated to the concentration of the alkylidene ligand, measured by specific reactions.
