Title
Transesterification of dimethyl carbonate with phenol using Brønsted and Lewis acidic ionic liquids
Abstract

Transesterification reaction of dimethyl carbonate with phenol to methylphenyl carbonate and diphenyl carbonate using dibutyltin oxide catalyst in conjunction with Brønsted and Lewis acidic ionic liquids was studied. It was observed that the use of ionic liquids significantly enhances the yield of diphenyl carbonate. The ionic liquid having p-toluenesulfonate as anion and metal halide (e.g. ZnCl2) as Lewis acid precursor exhibited higher activity and selectivity for diphenyl carbonate formation. Furthermore, the Brønsted and Lewis acidity of ionic liquids was measured by IR spectroscopy using pyridine as a probe and their Lewis acidity order was also determined.
