Crystal polymorphism in 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium halides: supporting ionic liquid formation by inhibition of crystallization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Crystallization of 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride from mixed ionic liquid or ionic liquid–aromatic solution, and from the melt yields different crystalline polymorphs, the first direct evidence for inhibition of crystallization in ionic liquids by polymorphism.
