A quaternary ammonium bromide covalently bound to polyethylene glycol (PEG, MW = 6000), i.e., PEG(6000-)(NBu(3)Br)2, was found to be an efficient and recyclable catalyst for the cycloaddition reaction of aziridines to CO(2) under mild conditions without utilization of additional organic solvents or cocatalysts. As a result, 5-aryl-2-oxazolidinone was obtained in high yield with excellent regioselectivity. The catalyst worked well for a wide variety of 1-alkyl-2-arylaziridines. Besides, the… CONTINUE READING
