Custom Synthesis of Ionic Liquids


Ionic liquids usually consist of an organic cation and an inorganic or organic anion. Typically, the cations are larger in volume and the anions are smaller, which results in an asymmetry in the molecular structure. On account of the volume asymmetry of the cations and anions, ionic liquids appear as liquids at or near room temperature. Furthermore, the polarity and hydrophilic/hydrophobicity of ionic liquids can be adjusted by the appropriate combination of cations and anions. It is this property of ionic liquids that has earned them the reputation of being "designer solvents".

To date, approximately 103 different ionic liquids are known from the literature, of which only 1/3 are commercially available. However, as the interest in ionic liquids has increased, the requirements for their structure and performance have become more customized. The existing ionic liquid products can hardly meet the needs of various technical applications as well as industrial and academic research. Therefore, custom synthesis services for ionic liquids are necessary. Alfa Chemistry has been deeply engaged in the field of ionic liquids for many years, and has a wealth of experience in providing custom synthesis of ionic liquids for our customers.
