General description

1-Butyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide is a room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL).

Application

BMImI can be used as a non-volatile electrolyte in dye-sensitized photochemical cells. It can also be used as a stabilizer/promotor/reaction medium for the transition metal catalyzed biphasic oxidative cyclocarbonylation of β-aminoalcohols and 2-aminophenol to form the corresponding 2-oxazolidinones.

Iodide-based ionic liquids have been widely employed as iodide sources in electrolytes for applications utilizing the triiodide/iodide redox couple. While adding a low-viscosity solvent such as water to ionic liquids can greatly enhance their usefulness, mixtures of highly viscous iodide-containing
