Abstract

At present, optical microscopy studies of minerals, especially diamonds, are hampered by the lack of available high refractive index (> 1.8) immersion fluids. We report here the syntheses and refractive indices of some 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium based ionic liquids containing polyhalide anions, which exhibit refractive indices between 1.6 and 2.23, and thus significantly extend the range of minerals which can be studied.
