Thirteen imidazolium based Room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) were synthesized. To tune the solubility of ionic liquids, two different types of cations a) halogen anion b) ortho- and para-substituted benzoates and different alkyl chains to imidazole moiety have been introduced. To investigate the potential of these ionic liquids as antimicrobial agents these have been tested against four bacterial strains, B.subtilis, S.aureus, S.epidermidis, and M.luteus. ILs with dihexyl imidazolium showed positive activity against all four organisms.
