A dramatic effect of the ionic liquid structure in esterification reactions in protic ionic media

Abstract

Brønsted acidic ionic liquids (ILs) have been synthesized and investigated as catalysts in esterification and transesterification reactions: simple and non-corrosive salts characterized by aliphatic cations associated with an “acidic” anion (in particular, [HSO4]) gave the higher yields. A quite good correlation between IL acidity (H0) and catalytic ability was found although also the hydrophilic nature of the ionic medium probably affects the process efficiency.
