Rational selection of the cation of an ionic liquid to control the reaction outcome of a substitution reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

A range of ionic liquids was examined as solvents for a substitution reaction. They were chosen through rationally varying the ionic liquid cation in order to enhance the rate constant. Access to charge and electron-withdrawing substituents benefitted rate enhancement, allowing ionic liquids to be rationally selected to control reaction outcome.
