Mutually immiscible ionic liquids

Author affiliations


This work presents the novel discovery of room-temperature ionic liquids that are mutually immiscible, some of which are also immiscible with solvents as diverse as water and alkanes; an archetypal biphasic system is trihexyltetradecylphosphonium chloride with 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (where the alkyl group is shorter than hexyl).
