Over the past decade, ionic liquids have come to the attention of a wider audience. Meanwhile, related research focused on ionic liquids grows daily. In response to the increasing demand for these chemicals, Alfa Chemistry recently announced the launch of a comprehensive line of ammonium-based ionic liquids for both researchers and manufacturers worldwide.

The ammonium ionic liquid is a compound in which hydrogen atoms in the ammonium ion are substituted by alkyl groups. As one of the major ionic liquids, ammonium-based ionic liquids won widespread interest due to their advanced features such as low vapor pressure, non-flammability, increased heat capacity, and good electrical conductivity.

“As a matter of fact, ammonium-based ionic liquids reveal possibilities for various exciting applications. For instance, they can be used for separation applications in analytical chemistry. Apart from that, ammonium-based ionic liquids can also be used for solid-phase microextraction, which shows the potential for commercial application. Moreover, ammonium-based ionic liquids are a new generation of green solvents,” said one of the senior scientists from Alfa Chemistry.

The most commonly used ammonium-based ionic liquids include 1-aminopropyl-3-methylimidazolium nitrate, 1-aminopropylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imine, 1-aminopropylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, 1-aminopropyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate, 1-aminoethyl-3- methylimidazolium bromide, and 1-aminoethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate.

Currently, hundreds of ammonium-based ionic liquids are easily accessible at Alfa Chemistry to help facilitate relevant research or support industrial manufacturing projects. Below is part of the list:

Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide (CAS 1031250–01–7), Tetramethylammonium hydrogen sulfate (CAS 103812–00–6), Tetrabutylammonium acetate (CAS 10534–59–5), Diethyl(2-methoxyethyl)methylammonium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide (CAS 1079129–48–8), Tetrabutylammonium chloride (CAS 1112–67–0), Tetrabutyl-ammonium chloride (CAS 1112–67–0), Lauryl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CAS 1119–94–4), Dodecyl trimethyl ammonium chloride (CAS 112–00–5), Octadearyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (CAS 112–03–8), Benzyl(ethyl)dimethylammonium Bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (CAS 1186103–43–4), N-ethyl-N-methyl-N-propylammonium perfluorobutanesulfonate (CAS 1186599–90–5), Methyltrioctylammonium trifluoromethanesulfonate (CAS 121107–18–4), Methyltrioctylammonium triflate (CAS 121107–18–4), 2-Hydroxyethyl trimethylammonium hydroxide (CAS 123–41–1), Choline hydroxide solution (CAS 123–41–1), Diethyl(methyl)propylammonium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide (CAS 1235234–32–8), Ethyl(2-methoxyethyl)dimethylammonium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide (CAS 1235234–35–1), Tributyl(methyl)ammonium dicyanamide (CAS 1262230–03–4), and more.
