The crystal structure of 1-butyl-2,3-dimethylimidazolium dicarba-7,8-nido-undecaborate was published in specialized crystallographic journal. The structure was solved using Ithaca College’s single crystal X-ray diffractometer facilities. This is the FOURTH publication which includes the crystallographic data collected on the single crystal X-ray diffractometer since it was purchased by IC Chemistry department in 2013. The compound was synthesized in Anna Larsens' laboratory and crystal sample was prepared by Lars Sodertsrom and Max Klemes.
The title compound belongs to the class of new low melting ionic materials with carborane cluster anions, investigated for their valuable electrochemical properties.
