Abstract

Both substituted imidazoles and 1,3-dialkylimidazolium salts can be fully deuteriated on the heterocyclic ring using D2O over heterogeneous Pd catalysts: deuteriated 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride and hexafluorophosphate ionic liquids can also be prepared in good yields utilising readily available and relatively low cost sources of deuterium.
