Benzimidazole dicationic ionic liquids (BDILs) have not yet been widely explored in spite of their potential. Therefore, two structurally related families of BDILs, paired with either bromide or bistriflimide anions and bearing alkyl spacers ranging from C3 to C6, have been prepared. Their thermal properties have been studied by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), while their electrical properties have been assessed by cyclic voltammetry (CV).

Recent Advances in Imidazolium-Based Dicationic Ionic Liquids as Organocatalysts: A Mini-Review
Imidazolium-based dicationic ionic liquids (DILs) are gaining considerable space in the field of organocatalysis mainly due to the opportunities in offering new possible applicable structural


Systematic Synthesis and Properties Evaluation of Dicationic Ionic Liquids, and a Glance Into a Potential New Field
A systematic study of a homogeneous class of 12 dibromide DILs and 12 di-carboxylate salts, showing some significant structural related effects and a new possible application was studied, namely their use as hydrogen bond acceptors of deep eutectic mixtures.
Thermal behavior analysis as a valuable tool for comparing ionic liquids of different classes
Ionic liquids (ILs) are neoteric solvents characterized by unique physicochemical properties and considerable structural variability. The thermal behavior of 24 ILs, belonging to two structurally
