- A site-selective catalytic incorporation of multiple CO₂ molecules into 1,3-dienes en route to adipic acids is described. This protocol is characterized by its mild conditions, excellent chemo- and regioselectivity and ease of execution under CO₂ (1 atm), including the use of bulk butadiene and/or isoprene feedstocks.
