Unique role of ionic liquid in microwave-assisted synthesis of monodisperse magnetite nanoparticles

Abstract

A small amount of ionic liquid [bmim][BF4] was found to be an efficient aid for microwave heating of nonpolar dibenzyl ether in high temperature solution-phase synthesis of monodisperse magnetite nanoparticles. It was found to act as both microwave absorber and assistant stabilizer in the reactive process and was recovered and reused in successive reactions.
