Christophe Das Neves Gomes, Dr. Olivier Jacquet, Dr. Claude Villiers, Dr. Pierre Thuéry, Dr. Michel Ephritikhine and Dr. Thibault Cantat Cover Picture: A Diagonal Approach to Chemical Recycling of Carbon Dioxide: Organocatalytic Transformation for the Reductive Functionalization of CO2 (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 1/2012) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
A blooming tree illustrates how CO2 can be recycled to a variety of chemicals based on a strategy discussed by T. Cantat and co-workers in their Communication on page 187 ff. The approach relies on the simultaneous use of a functionalizing reagent and a reductant that can be independently adjusted to access a variety of molecules from CO2. The direct conversion of CO2, amines, and silanes to formamides is reported.
