Abstract: Activated charcoal, commonly used for purification of ionic liquids is found, for the first time, to severely contaminate 1-butyl 3-methyl imidazolium iodide with iodine species during the conventional purification process. Surprisingly, the contaminants which includes I, reduces the viscosity of the ionic liquid considerably as compared to externally added molecular iodine, making it extremely promising for electrochemical applications.
