Mechanistic insights into heterogeneous zinc dicarboxylates and theoretical considerations for CO2-epoxide copolymerization.
Copolymerization of epoxides and CO(2) with heterogeneous zinc dicarboxylates is prominent since the early days of this area of chemistry. However, in over 30 years of research, the efficiency ofExpand
