The thermostability of Cu(II)-1,10-phenanthroline complexes was studied by the thermogravimetric analysis, and their catalytic properties were evaluated in oxidative carbonylation of methanol to dimethyl carbonate. It was found that the copper coordination environments and the thermostability of the complexes played important roles in their catalytic activities. Cu(1,10-phenanthroline)Cl2 exhibited the highest activity due to the lowest steric hindrance, the highest coordination probability and the highest thermal stability. With the addition of CuCl, the activity of Cu(1,10-phenanthroline)Cl2 could be further improved and the turnover number of dimethyl carbonate increased from 39.0 to 46.9 molDMC/molCu.
