Ionic liquids as insect feeding deterrents, soft tissue fixatives, and blood preservatives: Choline-derivative-based ionic liquids (depicted) have been prepared, their physical properties and crystal structures have been determined, and the antimicrobial activities of the hydrophilic acesulfamate-based ILs have been measured. Quaternary ammonium acesulfamates have been shown to be insect feeding deterrents (one example shown), opening up a new generation of synthetic deterrents based on ionic liquids.
