Synthesis and characterization of amino acid ionic liquids and low symmetry ionic liquids based on the triaminocyclopropenium cation.

This thesis involves the synthesis of two main classes of triaminocyclopropenium (tac) Ionic Liquids (ILs) (i) Amino Acid Ionic Liquids (AAILs) and (ii) reduced-symmetry cations. [C₃(NEt₂)₂(NRR’)]X (X = TFSA and MeSO₄) were prepared, whereby NHR is derived from amino acids. Optically pure AAILs, [E₄...
