- ... A series of novel zinc complexes were prepared by covalent linkage of various imidazolium-based ionic liquid moieties with the 2,2′-bipyridine ligand on the two sides of the 4,4′-position. The zinc(ii) complexes containing the rigid N-chelating ligand proved to be stable, highly efficient and easy-to-handle catalysts towards the synthesis of cyclic carbonate from epoxide and CO₂ without the use of ...
