Abstract

Carbon dioxide is immobilized into dialkyl carbonate using acetals of N,N-dimethylformamide under atmospheric pressure. No special treatment with tailor-made catalysts is needed. Use of dimethyl sulfoxide as a solvent is critical. An ambiphilic mechanism is proposed for the direct synthesis of dialkyl carbonates from acetals and carbon dioxide.
