Description

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.
