Abstract

An efficient protocol is described for producing cyclic carbonates in good to excellent yields under moderate reaction conditions (100.0 °C, 1.0 MPa) by treating epoxides with carbon dioxide, promoted by a series of azolate ionic liquids, which are effective recyclable metal-free and halide-free catalysts.
