Title:
Recent advances in CO2/epoxide copolymerization-New strategies and cooperative mechanisms 
Abstract:
The catalytic copolymerization of CO2 with epoxides has been known for over 40 years. Even though many heterogeneous and homogeneous catalyst systems have been developed, catalyst activity and selectivity still remain too low for large scale industrial application. Recent investigations have identified new copolymerization pathways with strong evidence for cooperative (bifunctional) mechanisms. At high dilutions, traditional discrete mononuclear single-site catalyst systems generally show a loss...    »
