ANR 2016 - AZAPCO2 - Azaphosphatranes in confined space for CO2 valorization

The AZAP-CO2 project brings together researchers from supramolecular chemistry, materials science and theoretical chemistry to produce metal-free highly engineered molecular, supramolecular and nested catalytic cavities to catalyze the enantioselective cycloaddition of carbon dioxide to substituted epoxides. The use of carbon dioxide, a renewable feedstock, to produce cyclic carbonates is particularly attractive both for carbon management and sustainable development.
