Three organozinc complexes have been synthesised and found to catalyse the carbonylation of propylene glycol with carbon dioxide to form propylene carbonate. A similar tethered organozinc complex was supported onto high loading aminopropyl functionalised hexagonal mesoporous silica and was also found to be catalytically active.
