Abstract:

The synthesis of cyclic carbonates from polyols is an important reaction from a sustainability point of view as polyols which are by-products of industrial transformations are used as reagents to produce useful chemical products with many applications. This review is focused on the transformation of polyols with carbon dioxide, urea or carbon monoxide to cyclic carbonates.
