Abstract

The generation and long-term stability of superoxide ion (O2 •-) in two trifluoromethanesulfonate [TfO]- anion-based ionic liquids (ILs), with cations of 1-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium [BMPyrr]+ and 1-butyl-2,3-dimethylimidazolium [BDMIm]+ have been investigated. The electrochemical generation was carried out by reducing O2 to O2 •- in ILs and was analyzed using a cyclic voltammetry (CV) technique. The chemical generation of O2 •- in ILs was carried out by the solvation of potassium superoxide (KO2) in the aprotic solvent, dimethyl sulfoxide, in the presence of the corresponding IL. Long-term stability of generated O2 •- in ILs was examined using UV-visible spectrophotometery at an absorbance range of 190-400 nm. It was found that the [BMPyrr]+ based IL has a lower O2 •- consumption rate than the [BDMIm]+ based ILs indicating that [BMPyrr][TfO] offers a promising long-term stability of O2 •- for various reactions and applications. This work represents the first attempt for using the [TfO]- based ILs as media for the chemical and electrochemical generation of O2 •-.
