- ... Deep eutectic solvents (DESs) become more attractive in the catalytic field due to their biodegradation, low toxicity, and designability. This study focused on the active sites and influencing factors of 1,3-dimethylurea (1,3-DMU) based DESs in the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) glycolysis process. It is found that the active site of urea derivatives is the amino group, and the basicity and ster ...
