Synthesis of styrene carbonate (SC) via the fixation of CO2 with styrene oxide (SO) has been investigated using a combination of zinc bromide (ZnBr2) and tetrabutylammonium halides (TBAX) as acid-base binary homogeneous catalysts. The combination of ZnBr2 and TBAB had a synergistic effect, which led to about 6-fold enhancement in the rate of SC formation as compared to using TBAB alone as a catalyst. Propylene carbonate (PC) was chosen as a green solvent for a comprehensive study of reactiondoi:10.1515/gps-2019-0042 fatcat:h4yhfgugtncatlpk7irtaic65m
