Since their conception, ionic liquids (ILs) have been investigated for an extensive range of applications including in solvent chemistry, catalysis, and electrochemistry. This is due to their designation as designer solvents, whereby the physiochemical properties of an IL can be tuned for specific applications. This has led to significant research activity both by academia and industry from the 1990s, accelerating research in many fields and leading to the filing of numerous patents. However, wh...

PVC is often found in composite materials and dehydrochlorination has been shown to be a viable option to recover valuable carbon forms and HCl from PVC, however, in current processes, the high temperature of operation is still detrimental. Ionic liquids were shown to tackle this issue by reducing the temperature of dehydrochlorination and improving its yield. The aim of this work is to address the separation problems associated with mixed composite materials and provide insight into the use of ...

: Water electrolysis is one of the most promising methods to produce H2 and O2 as high potential fuels. Comparing the two half-reactions, the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is the more difficult to be optimized and still relies on expensive noble metal-based catalysts such as Ru or Ir. In this paper, we prepared nanoparticles of HfN and Hf2 ON2 and tested them for the OER for the first time. The HfN sample, in particular, showed the highest activity, requiring an overpotential of only 358 mV at...

The effect of acidic gases present in flue gas, specifically NO, on the capture of CO2 by the superbase ionic liquid, trihexyltetradecylphosphonium benzimidazolide ([P66614][Benzim]), is reported. An online mass spectrometry technique was utilized to study the CO2 uptake of the ionic liquid during multiple absorption and desorption cycles of a gas feed containing NO and CO2 at realistic flue gas concentrations, and it was found that while NO alone could bind irreversibly, the CO2 capacity of the...

During this work, an original study of the CO2 and SO2 competitive gas absorption in three superbase ionic liquids (ILs), namely, trihexyltetradecylphosphonium 1,2,4-triazolide ([P66614][124Triz]), and trihexyltetradecylphoshonium benzimidazolide ([P66614][Benzim]), is reported for the first time. To initiate such a comprehensive study, the CO2 and SO2 mixed gas solubility in selected ILs was determined by using an original and accurate dynamic method coupled with mass spectrometry after several...
