Abstract Image

1,3,5-Trioxane-2,4,6-trione (cyclic trimer of CO2) is the product of a four-step synthesis: chlorination of isobutyraldehyde; cyclotrimerization of 2-chloro-2-methylpropanal; dehydochlorination of 2,4,6-tris(2-chloropropan)-2-yl-1,3,5-trioxane; ozonolysis at −80 °C of 2,4,6-tri(propan-2-ylidene)-1,3,5-trioxane. This trioxane-trione is detected in solution at temperatures between −80 to −40 °C, and its conversion to CO2 is monitored by 13C NMR and FTIR. The CO2 trimer has a half-life of approximately 40 min at −40 °C.
As a product of combustion and respiration whose accumulation in the atmosphere has become a cause for significant concern, carbon dioxide has been the subject of much research directed at its reutilization. Various approaches toward this CO2 reutilization goal have been described in excellent reviews over the past two decades.Important processes involve reduction with hydrogen,coupling with other small molecules, incorporation into polymers and artificial photosynthesis. The main products include fuels, solvents, chemical intermediates and polymers.
The efficiency of these commercial processes in terms of reagent usage is relatively low with respect to the fraction of CO2 incorporated into the product; the highest being for urea (57%), and decreasing for salicylic acid (36%) and methanol (10%). This could be raised to 100% if a CO2 self-fixation chemistry could be developed. Ideally with a sufficient input of energy, CO2 would react with itself to yield a liquid or solid product from which this energy could be extracted when needed for useful work. Such chemistry has been the subject of theoretical calculation for structures representing the linear polymer and cyclic oligomers of CO2.
With respect to thermodynamic stability, the cyclic trimer has been described as “feasible” although energetically less stable than three CO2 molecules by 27 kJ/mol per CO2 unit.(10)Regarding kinetic stability of the cyclic trimer toward fragmentation to CO2, calculated barriers for this decomposition have ranged from activation energies of 61 to 172 kJ/mol depending on the computational method with calculated half-lives ranging from days to milliseconds at ambient conditions and substantially longer at lower temperatures.
 The cyclic trimer of CO2has also been proposed as a low-energy intermediate in the transformation of CO2 to an extended solid.
The formation of an orthocarbonate extended covalent structure of interconnected six-membered rings was predicted by model calculation with the finding of a stabilization energy that increased with molecular size. Later experimental work found under extreme pressure/temperature (40 GPa/1800 K), CO2 will transform to a metastable extended solid which has been characterized as a Phase V form of CO2 with a sigma bonded quartz-like structure.
 It has also been proposed that sorption of CO2 into the isolated nanoscale confined spaces of sulfur- or nitrogen-treated porous carbon at 30 bar pressure can produce a polymeric structure of carbon dioxide as has been reported for other molecules in nanoconfined spaces.
The 1,3,5-trioxane-2,4,6-trione structure of the CO2 cyclic trimer, 1, may represent an important intermediate or product in the self-fixation of gaseous CO2. Theoretical studies on this molecule have indicated a possibility of kinetic stability at room temperature and as well as a possibility for it to be thermodynamically feasible.To date, no experimental evidence has been reported for its existence. The objective of this work is to synthesize compound 1 and to make an assessment of its stability. The approach is that of a model compound synthesis where the trioxane ring is first generated from substituted aldehydes and then the peripheral carbonyl structures are incorporated at low temperature in the final step. As will be shown, compound 1does not possess the stability for facile isolation and storage
