Abstract An efficient heterogeneous catalyst, namely, zeolitic imidazolate framework-68 (ZIF-68), was developed for the synthesis of cyclic carbonate from CO 2 and styrene oxide in the absence of any solvents or co-catalysts under mild reaction conditions (120 °C and 1.00 MPa). The textural properties of the ZIF-68 catalyst were determined by the powder X-ray diffraction, N 2 adsorption–desorption and thermal analysis. The acid–base property of ZIF-68 catalyst was investigated by NH 3 and CO 2… CONTINUE READING
