Series of symmetric 1,3-dialkylimidizolium bromides and corresponding bistrifluoromethanesulfonimides have been synthesized in order to characterize their physical properties and to determine if the ionic liquids are capable of interlocking.  The current study is being conducted on chain lengths ranging from two carbons to 18 carbons.  NOE experiments were conducted on [(C10)2im]Br in D2O to determine if the ionic liquid truly does interlock, as has been theorized.  Differences in purification of the samples are also demonstrated.
