Abstract: Hydrolysis of the ionic liquid Et3NHCl-2AlCl3 and a process for recycling thetriethylamine were studied. When the hydrolysis was carried out at a relatively hightemperature, the released HCl could be absorbed more easily. With addition of sodiumhydroxide to the aqueous hydrolysis solution, a feasible process for recycling triethylaminewas developed, involving first distillation of triethylamine, followed by filtration of thealuminium hydroxide. The yield of recovered triethylamine was about 95%. Thetriethylhydrogenammonium chloride prepared from the recycled triethylamine was of goodpurity and could be reused to synthesize new chloroaluminate ionic liquids.
Keywords: Ionic liquid; hydrolysis; triethylhydrogenammonium chloride; triethylamine recovery.
