General description

1,3-Dimethyl-2-imidazolidinone (DMI) is an imidazolidine derivative. It is reported to act as a promoter by minimizing the formation of dialkylation byproducts and accelerating the rate of monoalkylation of γ-butyrolactone.[4] Conversion of CO2 to form lower alcohols by homogeneous catalytic hydrogenation using DMI as solvent has been investigated.[5]
