Insertion of CO2 into E–X Bonds



This chapter deals with the “insertion” reactions of carbon dioxide (CO2) into E–X bonds, where E and X represent several different (sets of) atoms, such as M–H, M–OH, M–C, M–OR, M–O2, M–N, M–P, C–C, C–N, Si–H, and M–M (M = metal). Such reactions are relevant to catalysis for the formation of new bonds in which CO2 may be implied (C–C bonds or C–E bonds) and thus to the conversion of CO2 into added-value chemicals. The insertion product can be thermodynamically and kinetically stable or labile, offering in the latter case the opportunity of a catalytic path.
