Membranes. -An ionic liquid is found to be an efficient solvent for both olefin ring-closing and cross-metathesis reactions using Schrock's catalyst. These reactions are comparable to the same conversions in CH2Cl2 and proceed to 100% conversion. Furthermore, a new method to extract small molecules from the ionic liquid by carrying out a Soxhlet extraction using polydimethylsiloxane thimbles is developed. -(MILLER, A. L. I.; BOWDEN*, N.
