Ionic liquids (ILs) are substances composed exclusively of ions that are liquid below 373 K. Room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are like ILs but they are also liquid at 298 K. ILs have recently become of interest as a replacement for volatile organic solvents as they generally have little or no vapour pressure and high thermal stabilities meaning that they are more easily contained than traditional solvents. ILs are also of interest in electrochemistry because they can possess large electrochemical windows (EWs) when compared to conventional solvents. This study reports the synthesis of a library of tetraalkylammonium halide salts.
