Efficient scrubbing of mercury vapour from natural gas streams has been demonstrated both in the laboratory and on an industrial scale, using chlorocuprate(II) ionic liquids impregnated on high surface area porous solid supports, resulting in the effective removal of mercury vapour from natural gas streams. This material has been commercialised for use… (More)
Two stable nanofluids comprising of mixed valent copper(I,II) oxide clusters (<1 nm) suspended in 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate, [C(4)mim][OAc], and copper(II) oxide nanoparticles (<50 nm) suspended in trioctyl(dodecyl)phosphonium acetate, [P(8 8 8 12)][OAc], were synthesised in a facile one-pot reaction from solutions of copper(II) acetate hydrate in… (More)
Temperature-dependent switching of paramagnetism of a cobalt(II) complex is observed in an ionic liquid solution. Paramagnetic and thermochromic switching occur simultaneously due to a reversible change in coordination. This reversible switching is possible in the ionic liquid solution, which enables mobility of thiocyanate anions by remaining mobile at low… (More)
A series of novel, phosphine oxide functionalised ionic liquids have been synthesised and their application as tuneable lanthanide complexing agents is demonstrated.
Ionic liquids containing the hexafluoroacetylacetonate anion are immiscible with water and they exhibit strong metal-complexing ability.
Stable liquid and solid salts in the form of elusive hemiacetals, appended with fragrant alcohols, have been synthesised as pro-fragrances, and the controlled release of these fragrances, triggered by water, is demonstrated.
The crystal structure of the title compound, (C(6)H(11)N(2))(3)[EuBr(6)], consists of 1-ethyl-3-methyl-imidazolium cations and centrosymmetric octa-hedral hexa-bromido-europate anions. The [EuBr(6)](3-) anions are located at the corners and face-centres of the monoclinic unit cell. Characteristic hydrogen-bonding inter-actions can be observed between the… (More)
