Abstract

original image

Bifunctional, trinuclear complexes with high recycling potential in the synthesis of organic carbonates from oxiranes and carbon dioxide are described in the Full Paper on page 2641 ff. by A. W. Kleij et al. This supramolecular approach towards catalyst immobilization and recycling is highly promising, as demonstrated in a typical reaction that requires both Lewis acid and nucleophilic activation; the recycling potential of one of these complexes was found to be superior to the commonly used binary-type catalysts that comprise both (but separate) components
