The complex story of a simple Brønsted acid: Unusual speciation of HBr in an ionic liquid medium
2011 (English)In: Dalton Transactions, ISSN 1477-9226, E-ISSN 1477-9234, Vol. 40, no 41, 10801-10803 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Crystalline solids, co-existing in equilibrium with the 3-methyl-1H-imidazolium bromohydrogenates(i) ionic liquid, have been characterised by X-ray diffraction analysis. The Brønsted acidic, homo-conjugate [H(2)Br(3)](-) anions presented are discussed in terms of their structure and reactivity, in efforts to advance the understanding of Brønsted acidity in ionic liquid media.
