Solvent reorganisation as the driving force for rate changes of Menschutkin reactions in an ionic liquid

Author affiliations

Abstract

The effect on the rate of reaction of each of a series of Menschutkin processes on changing from a molecular solvent to an ionic liquid was investigated. In each case, the rate acceleration observed at room temperature could be attributed to the change in the entropy of the system on reaching the transition state, offsetting any enthalpic cost.
