Preparing linear and/or cyclic carbonate ester, comprises reacting an epoxide with carbon dioxide in the presence of a catalyst. The catalyst comprises a metal complex (IIa) or (IIb) with a ligand (IIc). The metal (IIa) is present in an oxidation state of >= 0. Preparing linear and/or cyclic carbonate ester, comprises reacting an epoxide with carbon dioxide in the presence of a catalyst. The catalyst comprises a metal complex of formula (M) (IIa) or (MA) (IIb) with a ligand of formula (L) (Iic). The metal (IIa) is present in an oxidation state of >= 0. A : halo, carboxylate, phenoxide, sulfonate, phosphonate, alkyl, alkoxy or amido; L : (Ia) or (Ib), where OH groups may be deprotonated; R1-R4 : H, 1-22C alkyl, 5-12C cycloalkyl, 7-14C aralkyl or 7-14C alkylaryl or 6-14C aryl; X : amine moiety of formula (II) or alkane moiety of formula (III); R5 : 1-22C alkyl, 5-12C cycloalkyl, 7-14C aralkyl, or 7-14C alkylaryl, 6-14C aryl, or optionally alkyl-substituted pyridyl or pyridylmethyl; R6, R7 : H, 1-22C alkyl, 5-12C cycloalkyl, 7-C14-aralkyl or alkylaryl, 6-14C aryl or -COOR8; and R8 : 1-8C alkyl. Independent claims are also included for: (1) the polymeric carbonate ester, which is obtained by the reaction of cyclic epoxide with carbon dioxide by the above mentioned method, where the number average molecular weight of polymeric carbonate ester determined by gel permeation chromatography is >= 500 g/mole to = 5000 g/mole and the polydispersity index is >= 1 to = 1.5; and (2) a metal complex of formula (XIX) or (XX). M1 : Cr(III)-A, Co(III)-A or Zn(II).
