Methyltrioxorhenium is a homogenous catalyst used in many oxidation reactions and also in metathesis of olefins. This review deals with methyltrioxorhenium as a catalyst for olefin metathesis. The catalyst must be used in the heterogenized form in metathesis of functionalized olefins. That is the reason for studying the catalyst heterogenization. Deactivation and other uses of this catalyst were also studied.
