Conversion of CO2 into Polymers
A Zn-MOF-Catalyzed Terpolymerization of Propylene Oxide, CO2, and β-butyrolactone
The terpolymerization of propylene oxide (PO), CO2, and a lactone is one of the prominent sustainable procedures for synthesizing thermoplastic materials at an industrial scale. Herein, the one-potExpand
Copolymerization of CO2 and epoxides mediated by zinc organyls
Herein we report the copolymerization of CHO with CO2 in the presence of various zinc compounds R2Zn (R = Et, Bu, iPr, Cy and Ph). Several zinc organyls proved to be efficient catalysts for thisExpand
New Catalytic Systems for Fixation of Carbon Dioxide into Valuable Poly(Alkylene Carbonates)
Fixation of carbon dioxide into valuable products is a promising method to mitigate the issues of global warming and decrease the consumption of fossil-fuel carbon sources. Poly alkylene carbonatesExpand
Recent advances in carbon dioxide based copolymers
Abstract Carbon dioxide is becoming increasingly important synthetic feedstock for chemicals and materials, since it is abundant, low-cost, non-toxic. One growing area in CO2 chemistry utilization isExpand
Dual Catalyst System for Asymmetric Alternating Copolymerization of Carbon Dioxide and Cyclohexene Oxide with Chiral Aluminum Complexes: Lewis Base as Catalyst Activator and Lewis Acid as Monomer Activator
Optically active aluminum complexes such as Schiff base, binuclear β-ketoiminate, and bisprolinol complexes were found to promote asymmetric alternating copolymerizations of carbon dioxide andExpand
Efficient magnesium catalysts for the copolymerization of epoxides and CO2; using water to synthesize polycarbonate polyols.
The synthesis and characterization of three highly active dimagnesium catalysts for the copolymerization of cyclohexene oxide and carbon dioxide, active under just 1 atm of carbon dioxide pressure,Expand
