Abstract:

This work involved chemical and electrochemical studies in a room temperature molten salt, N-butylpyridinium chloride BuPyC1 aluminum chloride together with efforts to devise and develop better electrochemical methods for the studies of reactions in these solvents. The reduction of the butylpyridinium cation, which is reduced prior to A1 in a basic excess BuPyC1 melt was studied It was shown that coupling takes place to lead to the formation of viologen species. The deposition of A1 from this melt and the melt mixed with benzene as a cosolvent was studied it was found that the acid-base properties of the solvent are unchanged when diluted with benzene.
