The cooperative effect of this cata- Solvent-free lyst system is enhanced when a little amount of DBU as additive is added at a KI:DBU weight ratio of 8:2, which Chitin enables scaling-up procedures to a multigram level, using a widely available biopolymer such as chitin. Furthermore, the same catalyst composition is able to activate the trans- Carbon esterification of propylene carbonate to dimethyl carbonate O O Dioxide OO under smooth reaction conditions using a KI:DBU weight ratio 1:1.
