Austrian researchers synthesize limonene carbonates in continuous flow

Given the high interest in converting CO2 to value-added chemicals, researchers at Austrian university TU Vienna have developed a continuous flow synthesis for limonene-based cyclic carbonates using supercritical CO2 as solvent and reactant. Cyclic carbonates can be used in various applications, such as solvents, electrolytes or polymer building blocks.
