Zhao, Hua; Malhotra, Sanjay V. (Sigma-Aldrich, 2002)This review describes the growing applications of ionic liquids in a wide range of synthetic reactions. The use of ionic liquids as solvents or catalysts presents a profound effect on the observed activities and selectivities.
Microwave-Assisted Esterification of N-Acetyl-L-Phenylalanine Using Modified Mukaiyama’s Reagents: A New Approach Involving Ionic Liquids Zhao, Hua; Song, Zhiyan; Cowins, Janet V.; Olubajo, Olarongbe (MDPI, 2008-01-16)Inspired by the concept of ionic liquids (ILs), this study modified the original Mukaiyama’s reagent, 2-chloro-1-methylpyridinium iodide (m.p. 200-dec), from ionic solid into liquids by changing its anion. The esterification ...
