Australian Journal of Chemistry (eingeladen),
We report the application of surface-active ionic liquids as ligands and optional reaction media in iridium-catalyzed water
oxidations. Three novel catalysts with N,N-dialkylimidazolidin-2-ylidene ligands based on amphiphilic imidazolium ionic
liquids were synthesized and characterized. Excellent turn-over frequencies of up to 0.92 s^-^1 were obtained in catalytic
water splitting, and activity was maintained for five consecutive catalytic cycles, with an overall turn-over number of 8967.
The addition of external surface-active ionic liquid showed unexpected behaviour, because strongly enhanced initial
reaction rates were observed
