Chemistry of Carbon Dioxide Relevant to Its Utilization: A Personal Perspective Academic Article uri icon


  • This presentation provides a review of the author's research group's contributions to the organometallic chemistry of carbon dioxide with a focus on incorporating this information into the development of an effective means for producing chemicals from this greenhouse gas. The types of chemistry addressed include insertion reactions of CO(2) into M-H, M-C, and M-O bonds as well as seminal contributions related to the copolymerization reactions of CO(2) and cyclic ethers. Relevant to this latter subject, efforts were made to place the author's achievements into perspective with the accomplishments of other investigators, but these efforts were not meant to be exhaustive.
