Nanofluids, colloidal suspensions consisting of base fluids and nanoparticles, are a new generation of engineering working fluids. Nanofluids have shown great potential in heat/mass transfer applications. However, their practical applications are limited by the high production cost and low stability. In this study, a low-cost agricultural waste, rice husk… (More)
The title compound, C(13)H(16)N(3)O(+)·PF(6) (-), which has an imide group in the imidazolium cation, is a new ionic liquid above its melting point. Two neighbouring mol-ecules are connected by a weak non-classical C-H⋯O hydrogen bond with the formation of centrosymmetric 14-membered dimers.
