The direct catalytic synthesis of carbamates from CO2, amines and methanol was achieved by controlling both the reaction equilibrium and the reactivity of the three components. The combination of CeO2 and 2-cyanopyridine was an effective catalyst, providing various carbamates including N-arylcarbamates in high selectivities.
