ABSTRACT:  A new synthetic method of six-membered cyclic carbonates is presented. Different 1, 3-bis(alkoxycarbonyloxy)propanes obtained from 1, 3-diols and diethyl or dimethyl carbonate were subjected to disproportionation at 200-350°C in the presence of colloidal silica or Sn(II) stearate leading to 1, 3-dioxan-2-ones. The disproportionation was carried out in gaseous and liquid phases. The presented method was especially useful for preparation of six-membered mono- and biscyclic carbonates from polyfunctional alcohols such as trimethylolpropane, pentaerythritol and trimethylolpropane dimer. The structure of the polymers obtained from 5-methyl-1, 3-dioxan-2-one and 5-ethyl-5-methoxycarbonyloxymethyl-1, 3-dioxan-2-one in the presence of different catalysts were analyzed using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry.
