Protic ionic liquid and ionic melts were prepared from the combination of methanesulfonic acid (CH3SO3H) and 1H-1,2,4-triazole (C2H3N3) at various molar ratios. The thermal properties, crystal structure, acid–base interactions, ionic conductivity, proton conduction behavior and electrochemical stability of the system were studied. The equimolar composition, 1,2,4-triazolium methanesulfonate (C2H4N3+·CH3SO3− (1)), was a proton transfer salt with a melting point of around 134 °C. Single crystal… Expand
