JIANG, DONG; LIU, JIE; YUAN WANG, YUAN y DAI, LI YI. THE SYNTHESIS OF SALICYLATE PROMPTED BY BR0NSTED ACIDIC IONIC LIQUIDS. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.54, n.1, pp. 40-42. ISSN 0717-9707. doi: 10.4067/S0717-97072009000100009.
Brønsted acidic ionic liquids based on imidazolium cation were employed as a series of efficient and environmentally benign catalysts and solvents for the synthesis of salicylate, the yields could reach 76%-96%. The optimal reaction conditions were determined. The results showed that Brønsted acidic ionic liquids were efficient catalysts and solvents which could be recycled easily without obvious decline in catalytic activities.
