On the interaction of ascorbic acid and the tetrachlorocuprate ion [CuCl4]2 in CuCl nanoplatelet formation from an ionic liquid precursor (ILP)

Addition of ascorbic acid to the ionic liquid butylpyridinium tetrachlorocuprate [C4Py]2[CuCl4] leads to the removal of one chloride from the [CuCl4]2− anion, leading to an intermediate IL/ascorbic acid adduct that is key for the formation of CuCl nanoplatelets from the IL.
