Abstract

In the present study, the nanocatalyst of imidazolium based ionic liquids (ILs) is synthesized for the fixation of carbon dioxide (CO2) under moderate conditions by utilizing a balloon of CO2 with commercially available epoxides. IL incorporated porous dendritic fibrous nanosilica (DFNS) catalyst (IL/DFNS) was designed and synthesized. The synthesized catalyst was characterized using N2 absorption desorption isotherm, XPS, SEM, EDX, TGA, HR-TEM, and AFM. For cyclic carbonate, an environmental friendly catalyst of porous IL/DFNS indicate highly impressive catalytic efficiency from CO2 through CO2 fixation and epoxides under mild condition. Attendance of polar hydroxyl and anion exchange nature groups of IL frame work to high surface area is known as the main aspect to be reliable for elevated catalytic efficiency and also advance in stability of catalyst and providing a proper recyclability.
