Abstract

The stability, liquid ranges, and thermal decomposition of a series of quaternized and protonated imidazolium nitrate and picrate salts have been investigated. The quaternized, N,N'-dialkylated imidazolium salts are more stable than the protonated examples, and salts with picrate anions are surprisingly more stable than the corresponding nitrate salts and in each case, decompose exothermically yielding volatile decomposition products.
