Dimethyl carbonate for environmentally benign reactions

  title={Dimethyl carbonate for environmentally benign reactions},
  author={Y K On},
Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is a unique molecule having a versatile reactivity. The transesterification of DMC with phenol gives methyl phenyl carbonate, which is converted into diphenyl carbonate (DPC) by the disproportionation. MoOJSiO, is an active catalyst for both reactions. DPC is an essential monomer in the non-phosgene route for polycarbonates. The methoxycarbonylation of aniline gives methyl N-phenyl carbamate in the presence of a lead compound. This reaction offers a non-phosgene route… CONTINUE READING
