    Abstract

    Fixation of CO2 by lithium amides derived from pyrrole and diisopropylamine generates a lithium carbamate polymer and dodecamer respectively. Moving to lithium-sodium hexamethyldisilazide produces a more complicated, intriguing reaction, where unusually the bimetallic composition is maintained in the product but its composition contains both carbamato and anhydride functionalities.
