Neutron diffraction has been used to investigate the liquid structure of a 1:2 solution of phenol in the ionic liquid N-methylpyridinium bis{(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl}imide at 60 ◦C, using the empirical potential structure refinement (EPSR) process to model the data obtained from the SANDALS diffractometer at ISIS. Addition of phenol results in suppression of the melting point of the pyridinium salt and formation of a room temperature solution with aromatic phenol–cation and phenol-OH to anion hydrogen-bonding interactions.
