Benefits of Ionic Liquids
Ionic Liquids are low melting (up to 100° C) salts and represent a new class of solvents with unusual physico-chemical properties:

  • Excellent solvating properties for a wide range of organic, inorganic and polymeric material
  • No measurable vapour pressure
  • Non-flammability
  • High thermal stability

Especially the latest generation of air and moisture stable room temperature ionic salts trigger a lot of interest as oftentimes significant enhancements in reaction rate, yield and selectivity are observed and the not measurable vapour pressure greatly reduces risk associated with traditional solvents. This makes them suitable alternatives for the traditional molecular solvents used in organic synthesis.
