A dream come true: For over three decades the catalytic synthesis of acrylates from the cheap and abundantly available C1 building block CO2 and alkenes has been an unsolved problem in catalysis research. A homogeneous catalyst system based on a Ni complex has now been developed that permits the catalytic synthesis of Na acrylate from CO2, ethylene, and a base (see scheme), as shown by a turnover number of greater than 10 with respect to the metal.
