Abstract

Stereoselective halogenations of alkenes and alkynes can be conducted in room-temperature ionic liquids, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide, and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride as "green" recyclable alternatives to chlorinated solvents.
