Chemical Valorisation of Carbon Dioxide
Chapter 6: Homogeneous CO2 Copolymerization and Coupling
Published:19 Dec 2022
The advances in catalytic homogeneous coupling and copolymerization of carbon dioxide with comonomers has enabled sustainable routes to existing polymers and new molecular structures. This chapter reviews selected approaches to coupling CO2 with olefins and epoxides to form monomers and copolymers directly. Both landmark advances and recent directions in the field of homogeneous catalytic conversion of CO2 into macromolecules are covered.
