Dr. Christopher J. Whiteoak, Dr. Ainara Nova, Prof. Dr. Feliu Maseras and Prof. Dr. Arjan W. Kleij Merging Sustainability with Organocatalysis in the Formation of Organic Carbonates by Using CO2 as a Feedstock ChemSusChem 5
In a fix: A new organocatalytic method for organic carbonate synthesis is reported and allows attractive conditions (25 °C, 10 bar, no solvent) to be used (see picture). Cyclic carbonates produced from CO2 and epoxides are isolated in high yields. The mild nature of this process increases the overall process sustainability for this type of widely studied carbon dioxide fixation process.
