Electrosynthesis of cyclic carbonates from epoxides and atmospheric pressure carbon dioxide

Author affiliations

Abstract

The use of CO2 for the preparation of value-added compounds has dramatically increased due to increased global warming concerns. We herein report an electrochemical cell containing a copper cathode and a magnesium anode that effectively converts epoxides and carbon dioxide to cyclic carbonates under mild electrochemical conditions at atmospheric pressure.
