Carbon dioxide is not only a gas found in our atmosphere, it can
also be used as an important "C-1 building block" in
synthetic chemistry or as a medium for organic reaction.
Filling the need for an up-to-date handbook, this ready reference
closely investigates the use of CO2 for urea, enzymes, carbamates,
and isocyanates, as well as its use as a solvent, in
electrochemistry, biomass utilization and much more besides.
