Latest J&K eNewsletter: Imidazolium Cation Ionic Liquids
An ionic liquid (IL) is a salt in the liquid state. In some contexts, the term has been restricted to salts whose melting point is below some arbitrary temperature, such as 100 °C (212 °F). Some of the unique properties of ionic liquids such as low vapor pressure, liquidity over a wide temperature range, high thermal stability, ionic conductivity, structural design ability, and the ability to dissolve a wide range of chemical species, have allowed ILs to bring a green revolution to chemistry and chemical engineering in the past dozen years. Research and development that involve ILs are prevalent in nearly every branch of chemistry and material science, including catalysis, organic synthesis, separation and analysis, electrochemistry, material chemistry, pretreatment of biomass, and energy technology.
J&K offers ionic liquids with low water content and high purity using multiple kinds of cations in combination with different anions. The chart below lists our Imidazolium Cation Ionic Liquids (see links below chart for other cation ILs):
