Raaba-Grambach, Austria: proionic is proud to announce to have gained REACH registration for its submitted substance EMIM TFSI (1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide (electronic grade)).
The decision of the EUROPEAN CHEMICALS AGENCY (ECHA) entitles proionic GmbH to produce a tonnage between 1 and 10 tonnes / year of EMIM TFSI.
An increasing demand for high-purity ionic liquids especially in the electronic and automotive industry induced the upscaling and REACH registration of EMIM TFSI. In addition to EMIM BF4, this is the second ionic liquid electrolyte available at ton-scale at proionic.
"Due to their high electrochemical stability, negligible vapor pressure & flammability as well as tunable solvation properties for the dissolution of electrochemically active species, a large number of implemented ionic liquid electrolyte applications exist", says Dr. Roland Kalb, CSTO & founder of proionic. "The increased safety and high-performance properties of IL based electrolytes add a fundamental value to corresponding technologies resulting in more economically viable processes", he adds. "Based on ECHA’s decision, proionic is now able to contribute to the competitiveness of ionic liquid based industrial technologies by enlarging its production capacity, as this goes along with a clear cost advantage for our customers", says Bernhard Ludwig, proionic's Head of Operations & Sales.
Ionic liquid production processes at proionic are based on CBILS® and are designed to deliver constant high-quality of ultra-pure & halide-free ionic liquids. Additionally to cost- efficiency, quality aspects such as a remarkable low water content of < 20 ppm for EMIM TFSI produced at ton-scale meet industry's requirements.
