Abstract

We report a robust continuous flow procedure for the synthesis of glycerol carbonate (2‐GLC) from green reagents glycerol and dimethyl carbonate (DMC), mediated by an inexpensive polymer‐supported base catalyst using methanol as co‐solvent. High conversion and selectivity were obtained, while residence times were typically shorter than 10 minutes.
