Client desired information on purification methodology of cyclic carbonates. The synthesis of cyclic carbonates includes three aspects: catalytic reaction of CO2 and epoxide, electrochemical reaction of CO2 and epoxide, and oxidative carboxylation of olefin. Ionic liquids with other chemical additives can be used. For selecting ionic liquids, understanding the interaction with other solutes and solvents is crucial.
