The ionic liquid 1,3-dimethylimidazolium methyl sulfate, [MMIm][MSO₄], together with a small amount of water (the amount taken up by the ionic liquid upon exposure to air), acts efficiently as both solvent and catalyst of the Knoevenagel condensation reactions of malononitrile with 4-substituted benzaldehydes, without the need for any other solvent or(More)
3,4,4a,5-Tetrahydrobenzo[e]pyrazino[2,1-c][1,2,4]thiadiazin-1(2H)-one 6,6-dioxides, molecular scaffolds with 3D architecture, were synthesized on solid supports via tandem N-acyl iminium ion cyclization followed by nucleophilic addition. The modular synthesis proceeded under mild conditions using commercially available building blocks and provided crude(More)
glucose. The influence of the solution acidity on the deconstruction of Miscanthus giganteus was examined by varying the 1-butylimidazole to sulfuric acid ratio. Increased acidity led to shorter preteatment times and resulted in reduced hemicellulose content in the pulp. Addition of water to the ionic liquid resulted in enhanced saccharification yields.
