General description

1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride is an organic salt and a room-temperature ionic liquid (RTIL). It is used as a solvent in many organic reactions due to its unique properties like small vapor pressures, high thermal stabilities and ionic conductivities.

Application

EMIC may be used in the preparation of aluminum chloride-EMIC, zinc chloride-EMIC and EMIC /tetrafluoroborate molten salts, which are useful in electrodeposition studies.

We present here equilibrium molecular dynamics simulation results for self-diffusion coefficients, shear viscosity, and electrical conductivity in a model ionic liquid (1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride) at different temperatures. The Green-Kubo relations were employed to evaluate the transport coefficients. When compared with available...
