Abstract

Low pressure carbon dioxide is used as the carbonation agent in a
simple, safe and efficient procedure for the synthesis of 6-membered
cyclic carbonates from 1,3-diols. Using readily available reagents and
proceeding at room temperature, this route offers a novel mild
alternative to phosgene derivatives.
