Cobalt catalysts for the coupling of CO2 and epoxides to provide polycarbonates and cyclic carbonates

Author affiliations

Abstract

This comprehensive tutorial review focuses on well-defined cobalt complexes that serve as homogeneous catalysts for the production of polycarbonates and cyclic carbonates from the coupling of carbon dioxide and epoxides. Special considerations are given to the mechanistic pathways involved in these processes.
