2-Hydroxyethylammonium formate

Excluding Sales Tax

2-Hydroxyethylammonium formate is one of the simplest ionic liquids. This ionic liquid is miscible with many solvents, both aqueous and organic. It is a sustainable chemical because of its low volatility, high chemical and physical stability, recyclable, reusable, and easy to handle. Exemplary applications include

  • stable electrolytes in dye-sensitized solar cells, secondary batteries, electrochromic displays, supercapacitors, electrolytic membranes, fuel cells, electrochemical sensors or biosensors, and actuators 
  • solvent for Ni electrodeposition
  • biorefinery solvent for biopolymers such as agarose, starch, cellulose, zein protein, etc.
  • solvent for synthesis of TiO2 nanoparticles
  • Product Information

    Colorless viscous liquid
    •    Product ID : MEAFO
    •    CAS : 53226-35-0
    •    Molecular formula : C3H9NO3
    •    Molecular mass : 107.11g/mol

    Important attributes include:

    • liquid does not freeze at temperatures around 0°C
    • universal solvent for both inorganic salts and organic compounds.
    • extremely low freezing point (−82°С).
    • high conductivities, low viscosities and a lower toxicity for electrochemical application without the observed disadvantages of ionic liquids based in chloroaluminates 
    • unlike halogenated ionic liquids, formate ionic liquids are relatively hydrolysis stable compounds
    • more user-friendly, halogen-free ionic liquid. 
    • has the highest electrical conductivity, lowest shear viscosity, and lowest melting point among other ionic liquids
  • SDS
