Abstract

The aim of this work is to review different synthesis methods of dialkylcarbonates with special emphasis on diethyl carbonate synthesis methodologies. The novel synthesis route for dimethyl carbonate and diethyl carbonate based on the utilization of alcohol and carbon dioxide as the raw materials, together with heterogeneous catalysts, is presented.
