With the growing demand for green chemistry, mesoporous solid strong bases have attracted increasing attention in view of their tremendous potential as eco-friendly catalysts in diverse reactions. In the present study, K-incorporated mesoporous carbon is successfully prepared through high-temperature chemical activation combined with the hard-templating method. The combined method is proved to be very effective at promoting the formation of stable K species that strongly interact with the carbon support. The obtained solid bases thus have both high activity and enhanced water-resistant stability, which is reflected in their catalysis of the transesterification of ethylene carbonate with methanol to dimethyl carbonate. A much higher turnover frequency (TOF) value (430.4 h1) and better reusability are thus observed, compared with a series of typical and popular solid bases, such as MgO (TOF, 1.0 h1) and CaO/SBA-15 (TOF, 6.4 h1).
