Cyrene as a bio-alternative solvent: a highly efficient, waste minimizing protocol for the synthesis of ureas from isocyanates and secondary amines in the bio-available solvent Cyrene is reported. This method eliminated the use of toxic solvents, such as DMF, and established a simple work-up procedure for removal of the Cyrene, which led to a 28-fold increase in molar efficiency versus industrial standard protocols.
