Two electrochemical techniques have been used to measure the pKa of N-bases in several ionic liquids. The first method corresponds to a potentiometric titration of a strong acid with the N-base using a platinised Pt indicator electrode immersed in the IL solution and maintained under dihydrogen atmosphere via gas bubbling. The second approach involves performing cyclic voltammetry at a platinised Pt electrode in a solution containing both strong acid and the conjugate weak acid of the N-base. Values of pKa obtained by one or the other approach are in good agreement with each other. The experimental data clearly demonstrated that acid/base chemistry in ILs is similar to that observed in molecular non-aqueous solvents i.e. the relative strengths of the bases were in the right order and spaced (ΔpKa). It was also observed that the strength of N-bases is highly dependent on the anion of the ionic liquid; this observation indicates that pH-dependent reactions could be controlled by appropriate choice of anion for bulk ILs or as an added co-ion to bulk IL.
