Run DMC: Homogeneous catalysts based on titanium alkoxides and polyethers were studied for the production of the industrially important intermediate dimethyl carbonate (DMC) from carbon dioxide and methanol (see scheme). The reaction proceeds in the presence of 2,2-dimethoxypropane as a recyclable organic dehydrating agent under supercritical CO2 conditions.
