General description

1-Butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate is a high-purity ionic liquid (HPIL) with low water and halogen content, which makes it an effective solvent for transition-metal-catalyzed reactions. Some of its other advantageous properties include hydrophobicity and lack of vapor pressure.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for catalytic efficiency. Click here for more information.
