We report here the syntheses, characterisation and electrochemistry of some 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium, [emim], uranium halide salts. The electrochemistry of the uranium halide salts were investigated in both basic and acidic haloaluminate ionic liquids (ILs). The solid state structures of the uranium chloride salts have previously been reported, but have now been re-evaluted using a new statistical model to determine the presence or absence of weak hydrogen bonding interactions in the crystalline state.
