Microwave assisted synthesis of cyclic carbonates from olefins with sodium bicarbonates as the C1 source

Author affiliations

Abstract

An effective transformation of alkenes into cyclic carbonates has been achieved using NaHCO3 as the C1 source in acetone–water under microwave heating, with selectivities and yields significantly surpassing those obtained using conventional heating.
