In summary, the utilisation of potassium carbonate in neat conditions is a very versatile and green synthetic method and thus shows great applicability with a variety of substrates, containing different backbone structures, such as aliphatic straight chain and cyclic and aromatic compounds, to undergo both Henry and Michael reactions.
As shown in Scheme 1, a mixture of 60 g (1 mol) urea and 750 g (10 mol) MC with potassium carbonate (6 g) as an initiator was stirred and refluxed at 160 C for 6 h, and then the methanol from the reaction was collected.
First, 1,3,5-trihydroxybenzene (1.26 g, 10 mmol), 4-fluorobenzophenone (6.00 g, 30 mmol), and potassium carbonate (4.14 g, 30 mmol) were added to a 100 mL three-necked round-bottomed flask that equipped with a magnetic stirrer, a thermometer, a Dean-Stark trap fitted with a condenser and an argon inlet and outlet.
Two samples composed of 90% [H.sub.3]B[O.sub.3] (boric acid) + 10% [K.sub.2]C[O.sub.3] (potassium carbonate) and 85% [H.sub.3]B[O.sub.3] (boric acid) + 15% [K.sub.2]C[O.sub.3] (potassium carbonate) are firmly crystalline by XRD analysis.

By using potassium carbonate as an auxiliary substance for electrolysis, the 1500K produces no chlorine odor and rust, typical byproducts of chlorine gas.
Dual independent activation by a 24hr automatic fusible link and a quick-action manual release provides protection the moment a fire is detected, releasing a throttle discharge of a potassium carbonate based water solution as fine droplets, with a full cone spray, ensuring complete fire suppression and preventing re-ignition.
