We propose in this research project the development of statistical models for predicting reactivity in organic reactions catalyzed by transition metals using consolidated strategies of correlation between the catalyst structure with its catalytic activity and also using models based on machine learning. We intend to explore molybdenum catalyzed olefin metathesis reactions aiming to develop a hybrid model that combines the description of the intermediates of interest both in terms of steric and electronic parameters and also using kinetic descriptors from the calculation of relevant transition states and also thermodynamics descriptors, thus unifying the distinct steric regimes present in these catalysts and with these results we intend to expand the scope of ligands used in these important reactions.
