There are strings attached: After linking the reacting groups to head groups of ionic liquids to drastically lower the vapour pressures of the reactants, ordinary liquid-phase organic reactions can be monitored by in situ X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. This approach is demonstrated for the nucleophilic substitution of an alkyl amine and an alkyl chloride moiety, which are attached to the cation and anion of ionic liquids, respectively.
