Keywords
  • Refractive Index Determination Of Minerals And Gems Often Requires Their Immersion In Fluids With Th
  • However
  • These Natural Materials Frequently Have Refractive Indices Above The Ranges Of Common Organic Solven
  • Most Available High Refractive Index Immersion Materials Are Solid At Room Temperature
  • Toxic
  • Noxious
  • Corrosive
  • Carcinogenic
  • Or Any Combination Thereof
  • Since The Physical Properties Of Ionic Liquids Can Be Tuned By Varying The Cation And/Or Anion
  • We Have Developed Immersion Fluids For Mineralogical Studies Which Are Relatively Benign
  • We Report Here The Syntheses Of A Range Of Ionic Liquids ( Many Novel) Based On The 1-Alkyl-3-Methyl
  • Which All Have Refractive Indices Greater Than 1
  • 4
  • And Can Be Used As Immersion Fluids For Optical Mineralogy Studies
  • We Further Show That For A Series Of Ionic Liquids With The Same Anion
  • The Refractive Indices Can Be Adjusted By Systematic Changes In The Cation
