Electrochemical reduction of nitrobenzene and 4-nitrophenol in the room temperature ionic liquid [C(4)dmim][N(Tf)(2)]

Abstract:

The reductions of nitrobenzene and 4-nitrophenol were studied by cyclic voltammetry in the room temperature ionic liquid 1-butyl-2,3-dimethylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide [C4dmim][N(Tf)2] on a gold microelectrode. Nitrobenzene was reduced reversibly by one electron and further by two electrons in a chemically irreversible step. The more complicated reduction of 4-nitrophenol revealed three reductive peaks (two irreversible and one reversible) which were successfully simulated ...
