Electrocatalysis on ionic liquids : defining experimental conditions


The use of room temperature ionic liquids (ILs) for electrocatalytic purposes is a relatively new and promising field that emerged in Electrochemistry on the past few years [1-3]. However, to fully understand the role played by the ILs from an electrocatalytic point of view, it is of outstanding importance controlling some critical experimental parameters including water content, temperature and chemical nature of the IL, among others [4]. In the present communication, we evaluate different pretreatments to minimize the water content on different imidazolium based ILs. However, this initial water content must be also kept under control during the specific electrocatalytic experiments. In this regard, we will show that for relevant electrochemical reactions such as CO2 electroreduction or even for deoxygenating purposes (through argon bubbling), the use of gas filters is indispensable to control the water content during the experiments. All these experimental conditions will allow the role of the ILs to be better understood.
