Chromium Amino-bis(phenolate) Complexes as Catalysts for Ring-Opening Polymerization of Cyclohexene Oxide
The chromium(III) amino-bis(phenolate) “ate” complex, {Na[CrCl2L1]}, 1, where L1 = 6,6′-((1,4-diazepane-1,4-diyl)bis(methylene))bis(2,4-di-tert-butylphenolato) and its derivatives 2–4 (where the ph...
Cobalt catalysts for the coupling of CO2 and epoxides to provide polycarbonates and cyclic carbonates.
This comprehensive tutorial review focuses on well-defined cobalt complexes that serve as homogeneous catalysts for the production of polycarbonates and cyclic carbonates from the coupling of carbonExpand
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
Synthesis and stabilization of high-molecular-weight poly(propylene carbonate) from ZnCo-based double metal cyanide catalyst
High-molecular-weight poly(propylene carbonate) (PPC) was synthesized using a Zn-Co-based double metal cyanide (Co-DMC) catalyst. The catalytic activity reached as high as 60.6 kg polymer/g Co-DMCExpand
Carbon dioxide‐based copolymers: Environmental benefits of PPC, an industrially viable catalyst
Modification of the PPC, the so‐called toughening and strengthening at high temperature, and plasticizing at low temperature are described, including incorporation of a third monomer unit by chemical terpolymerization, and introduction of special intermolecular interactions or crystallizable components by physical blending.
