We have synthesized a new class of N-alkenylated β-lactam derivatives and studied their metathetic behavior. Here, ring-opening metathesis is more favorable than ring-rearrangement metathesis. Molecular modelling studies revealed that the orientation of two olefinic moieties of β-lactam derivatives are far apart and therefore ring-rearrangement metathesis did not occur and ring-opening metathesis is only feasible.
