Kinetics of the (salen)Cr(iii)- and (salen)Co(iii)-catalyzed copolymerization of epoxides with CO2, and of the accompanying degradation reactions Academic Article uri icon


  • The catalytic cycle of the (salen)M(iii)-catalyzed copolymerization for a variety of epoxides with CO2is elucidated using computational chemistry, and factors that control the kinetics and product distribution of these reactions are described.
