Abstract

A zinc-based hydroxyapatite catalyst in conjunction with a Lewis base proved to be efficient for the coupling of CO2 and epoxide in the absence of additional organic solvents under an atmospheric CO2 pressure; the work-up procedure is straightforward and the catalyst could be reused without loss of catalytic activity and selectivity.
