Abstract

The novel heterogeneous catalysts are highly demanded to perform the cycloaddition reaction of carbon dioxide with epoxide to synthesize the cyclic carbonates. The heterogeneous catalysts are more preferred than homogeneous catalysts due to the easy post reaction separation, easy to recycle, high stability and cost effective nature. In this review, we have summarized the current research progress in heterogeneous catalysis for the cycloaddition of carbon dioxide (CO2) to synthesis of cyclic carbonates. Recent advances in the design of the heterogeneous catalysts and the understanding to the role of catalysts in reaction process are summarized and discussed.
