Evidence for the spontaneous formation of N-heterocyclic carbenes in imidazolium based ionic liquids

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present a study of the reactions of aldehydes in ionic liquids which gives evidence for the spontaneous formation of N-heterocyclic carbenes in ionic liquids based on 1,3-dialkyl substituted imidazolium cations from the lack of a deuterium isotope effect on the reaction of these ionic liquids with aldehydes.
