The structure of liquid 1, 3-dimethylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate is described in detail and compared with the structure of 1, 3-dimethylimidazolium chloride. In each case, the data were obtained from neutron diffraction experiments and analysed using an empirical potential structure refinement process. Overall, the structures are similar; however, significant differences arise from the variation in anion size.
