Personal Adventures in the Synthesis of Copolymers from Carbon Dioxide and Cyclic Ethers Academic Article uri icon


  • This chapter focuses on recent advances in the development of well-defined metal catalysts for the coupling of CO2 and oxiranes for the production of polycarbonates and cyclic carbonates. Since this subject has been comprehensively covered in several reviews recently, this treatment will center on contributions from our laboratory within the context of other published work. Special attention will be given to our current studies dealing with depolymerization pathways of polymeric materials derived from completely alternating copolymerization of CO2 and epoxides. 2014 Elsevier Inc.
