- An intensification of the “electrophile–nucleophile” synergistic effect was achieved in a microreactor for the coupling reaction of CO₂ and epoxides mediated by the binary Al complex/ternary ammonium salt catalyst system. The microreactor technology is proven to be a powerful tool for the preparation of cyclic carbonates with an improved reaction rate and a wide substrate scope.
