Mechanistic studies of the electro-oxidation pathway of ammonia in several room-temperature ionic liquids

Abstract:

A mechanistic study of the direct oxidation of ammonia has been reported in several room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs), namely, [C4mim] [BF4], [C4mim][OTf], [C2IrUm][NTf2], [C4mim][NTf2], and [C4mim][PF6], on a 10 μm. diameter Pt microdisk electrode. In four of the RTILs studied, the cyclic voltammetric analysis suggests that ammonia is initially oxidized to nitrogen, N2, and protons, which are transferred to an ammonia molecule, forming NH4+ via the protonation of the anion(s) (A-). In c...
