Title

Onium-Poly(Hydrogen Fluorides): Convenient Ionic Liquids for Fluorination and Acid Catalysis

Abstract

Onium polyhydrogen fluorides as room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) have found a wide variety of applications in organic chemistry. They are used as ionic solvents, fluorinating agents and as Bronsted acid catalysts in organic synthesis. A variety of industrially important reactions such as fluorinations, halofluorinations, electrophilic alkylations, nitrations, and hydrocarbon isomerization reactions have been carried out using them. This short review covers some slected salient recent applications of these intriguing ionic liquids.
