Abstract

In this chapter, a didactic and critical overview of the main classes of heterogeneous catalysts for the conversion of CO2 into cyclic carbonates or polycarbonates is provided. The type of active sites, the catalytic mechanism and the state-of-the-art strategies to design active, selective and stable heterogeneous catalysts for these reactions are presented and discussed.
