In this paper the anti-bacterial and the anti-corrosion effect of two different ionic liquids, namely 1-(2-hydroxyethyl)-3-methylimidazolinium chloride ([OH-EMIm]Cl) and 1-ethyl-3-methyleimidazolinium chloride ([EMIm]Cl) was demonstrated. The results revealed that the corrosion inhibition influence of the ionic liquid [OH-EMIm]Cl is higher than that of the ionic liquid [EMIm]Cl. Furthermore, the ionic liquid [OH-EMIm]Cl showed better biocidal influence compared with the ionic liquid [EMIm]Cl. This indicates the synergistic effect due to the incorporation of the hydroxyl group into the side chain of the imidazolium cation leading to enhanced antibacterial and anticorrosion effect.
