A kinetic study of azidations of aromatic compounds in ionic liquids
What is it about?
In this work, we carride out a kinetic study of the aryl azide formation usimg functionalised imidazoilium ILs with azide anion as a nucleophile, under mild reaction conditions.
Why is it important?
This is one of the few works analysing from a kinetic perspective, which structural parameters of the substrates favor the reactions and which, on the ohter hand disfavor it. Importantly this works offers also a mechanistic view of the azidation of aromatic compounds with functionalised ionic liquids.
