Organocatalytic valorisation of glycerol via a dual NHC-catalysed telescoped reaction
Journal article, 2017

A general telescoped reaction for the NHC-catalysed carbonation and aerobic esterification of glycerol and 2-amino-2-methylpropane-1,3-diol has been developed. The reaction provides highly functionalised glycerol derivatives in good to excellent yields (up to 95%) using low catalyst loadings and ambient conditions.
