Ionic liquids that form adducts with alcohols

7/02/2017


Recent paper by QUILL researches features on inside cover of Green Chemistry.

A class of ionic liquids with a built-in active ketone functionality is shown to form adducts with structurally diverse alcohols. The positions of the equilibria for adduct formation are shown to be dependent on the structure of the alcohols. How these functionalised ionic liquids could be applied in altering vapour phase compositions of alcohols and in separations of perfumery alcohols are demonstrated.
