Abstract

Copolymn. of CO2 and oxiranes using a high-pressure autoclave typically allows one expt. per reactor per day. A high-throughput parallel setup was developed and validated for the copolymn. of CO2 and cyclohxene oxide (CHO) with two b-diiminato zinc complexes. The catalyst activity is affected by even traces of moisture, given the small amt. of catalyst used. The polymns. were controlled and reproducible although not every reaction was successful.
