Ionic Liquid in Hydrogenation
An ionic liquid (IL) is a salt with low melting point. Hydrogenation is a chemical reaction constituting the addition of pairs of hydrogen atoms to an unsaturated substrate, e.g., alkene or carbonyl compound, to reduce/saturate these organic compounds, usually in the presence of a transition-metal catalyst, e.g., palladium. Ionic liquid in hydrogenation refers to those ILs applied for the hydrogenation acting as solvent to solubilize a great number of organic and inorganic compounds or stabilizer to form ion pairs with charged intermediates and participate in polar transition states, resulting in impressive improvement of yields and selectivities.
