Illium can provide either "platform" or "fixed" ionic liquids.    Platform ionic liquids have an interchangable, alkyl carbonate, anion. Shown below are three classes of platform ILs and their facile conversion to fixed ILs.    The user simply titrates 1 eq of any acid with pKa < 9, stirs the ion exchange reaction briefly at room temperature, and evaporates methanol to arrive at the final product.   Platform ILs are ideal for screening.



                                   

     Illium can provide the following Platform ILs in the Research (1-10 kg), Pilot (10-100 kg) and Commercial (>100 kg) scale:

   cholinium-hydrogen carbonate solution (50 weight % in water) >98% purity *BIO-BASED IONIC LIQUID*
   lignin-based methylcarbonate solution (30 weight % in water) >98% purity *BIO-BASED IONIC LIQUID*
   1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium methylcarbonate solution (30 weight % in methanol) >98% purity
   1,3-dimethylimidazolium methylcarbonate solution (30 weight % in methanol) >98% purity
   1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium methylcarbonate solution (30 weight % in methanol) >98% purity
   1-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium methylcarbonate solution (50 weight % in methanol) >98% purity
   triethylmethylammonium methylcarbonate solution (50 weight % in water) >98% purity
   tributylmethylammonium methylcarbonate solution (50 weight % in water) >98% purity
   trioctylmethylammonium methylcarbonate solution (50 weight % in water) >98% purity
   tributylmethylphosphonium methylcarbonate solution (50 weight % in water) >98% purity
   trioctylmethylphosphonium methylcarbonate solution (50 weight % in water) >98% purity

    Fixed ILs are for customers not equipped to perform ion exchange reactions or seeking an already known final product, e.g. 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethane)sulfonimide (EMIM NTf2)

   The Anion List for "final" ILs available from Illium is acetate, chloride, methylsulfonate, methylphosphonate, bis(trifluoromethane)sulfonimide
