Alternating Copolymerization of Carbon Dioxide with Cyclohexene Oxide Catalyzed by a Novel Catalyst
A novel catalyst for the copolymerization of CO2 and cyclohexene oxide(CHO) was prepared by using BTE and ZnCl2. The zinc complex showed catalytic activity for the copolymerization. The obtained copolymer was characterized by IR and NMR. Effect of reaction time on copolymerization was investigated.
