    The utilization of carbon dioxide as a feedstock for the synthesis of organic chemicals can contribute to a more sustainable chemical industry, since CO2 is an abundant, inexpensive and non-toxic renewable C1 resource. Nevertheless, far less attention was paid to the stereochemically controlled catalytic CO2 fixation/conversion processes. The presentation therefore aims to principally showcase of the recent progress regarding CO2 mediated formation of chiral fine chemicals, including enantioselective synthesis of cyclic carbonates by asymmetric ring-opening of epoxides with CO2, enantioselective synthesis of oxazolidinones by the coupling reaction of aziridines with CO2 and enantioselective synthesis of CO2-based polycarbonates from epoxides, as well as chiral diols and carbamates via polycarbonate intermediates.
