Abstract

This study investigates the effect FeCl3 on the radiation stability of the ionic liquid, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride BmimCl over a wide dose range of 0 to 1000 kGy under γ-ray radiation. The ionic liquid species, BmimFeCl4, was formed by adding FeCl3 into BmimCl. The results showed that the presence of FeCl4 significantly improved the radiation resistance of BmimCl, wherein the effect was more pronounced at higher FeCl4 content. Meanwhile, under irradiation, FeII was generated from FeIII, which was reduced by solvated electron. In addition, the concentration of FeII increased with low level of absorbed dose, but leveled off at higher doses. Moreover, the radiation yield of the solvated electrons of BmimCl was further estimated at approximately 0.358±0.01 μmol-J in BmimCl-7 mol% FeCl3 system.
