Ionic liquids (ILs) are molten salts with melting points lower than 100 °C. They usually consist of pair of organic cation and anion. ILs exhibit unique properties such as nonvolatility, high thermal stability, and high ionic conductivity and find applications as electrolytes in lithium/sodium ion batteries and dye-sensitized solar cells. They are also used as media for synthesis of conducting polymers and intercalation electrode materials.

Cycloaddition of carbon dioxide to butyl glycidyl ether using imidazolium
salt ionic liquid as a catalyst
Yu J, et al.
Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering, 27, 446-451 (2010)
