Continuous synthesis of peralkylated imidazoles and their transformation into ionic liquids with improved (electro)chemical stabilities.

Abstract

A versatile and efficient method to synthesize tetrasubstituted imidazoles via a one-pot modified Debus-Radziszewski reaction and their subsequent transformation into the corresponding imidazolium ionic liquids is reported. The tetrasubstituted imidazoles were also synthesized by means of a continuous flow process. This straightforward synthetic procedure… (More)
