Despite its remarkable ionic conductivity at low temperature (melting point = -49[degrees]C), propylene carbonate (PC), widely used as a main organic solvent in primary lithium batteries, has not been applied to LIBs due to undergoing ceaseless cointercalation into graphite during the first charging [13-16].
These features prompted us to investigate the catalytic potential of functionalized CNTs supported POMs for the synthesis of propylene carbonate from propylene oxide and C[O.sub.2].
The liquid electrolyte comprises a lithium salt such as lithium hexafluorophosphate dissolved in an organic solvent like ethylene carbonate or propylene carbonate.
This action will, for example, allow automotive refinish and architectural coating product formulators to substitute propylene carbonate and dimethyl carbonate, thereby replacing more reactive VOCs currently in use.
The electrochemical investigations were conducted by means of cyclic voltammetry (CV) in acetonitrile (ACN), dimethylformamide (DMF), propylene carbonate (PC), or nitromethane (NM), solvents commonly used for electrochemical measurements, aiming to draw some conclusions in the solvent effects on the chemosensors chelating ability.
Reactions of EBUI with an Excess of Propylene Carbonate. In a 250 [cm.sup.3] three-necked round bottom flask 10 g (0.0375 moles) BHPU esterified with boric acid (EBUI) and the appropriate amount of propylene carbonate (PC, pure, Fluka, Switzerland) were placed to reach the molar ratio of reagents of 1:6, 1:12, or 1: 18 and 0.46-0.78 g potassium carbonate (12.0-20.8 g/mole EBU, 0.09-0.15 mole/mole EBU) or 0.38-0.63g diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO, 10.1-16.8 g/mole EBU, 0.09-0.15 mole/mole EBU) was added.
BaTi[O.sub.3] slurries at two solids loadings, 10 vol% and 30 vol%, were prepared by ultrasonically mixing powders with a propylene carbonate ([epsilon] = 66.7 at 25[degrees]C, from Fisher Scientific) for 30 min.
