HT Approach for the Identification of Anilinium-based Ionic Liquids Suitable for Electropolymerisation

Melbourne / Clayton / Brisbane, Australia

High-throughput approach for the identification of anilinium-based ionic liquids that are suitable for electropolymerisation with Chemspeed’s Fully Automated SYNTHESIZER

“We report the synthesis of new protic ionic liquids (PILs) based on aniline derivatives and the use of highthroughput (HT) techniques to screen possible candidates. In this work, a simple HT method was applied to rapidly screen different aniline derivatives against different acids in order to identify possible combinations that produce PILs. This was followed by repeating the HT process with a Chemspeed robotic synthesis platform for more accurate results. One of the successful combinations were then chosen to be synthesized on a larger scale for further analysis. The new PILs are of interest to the fields of ionic liquids, energy storage and especially, conducting polymers as they serve as solvents, electrolytes and monomers at the same time for possible electropolymerisation (i.e. a self-contained polymer precursor).”
