Summary Solvate ionic liquids (SILs) consisting of lithium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide dissolved in tri-or tetraglyme have recently emerged as a novel class of ionic liquids. Herein, the first use of solvate ionic liquids as a replacement for molecular solvents in electrocyclization reactions is reported. The SILs promoted both Diels-Alder and [2+2] cycloaddition reactions, compared to an appropriate molecular solvent, and 5 M lithium perchlorate in diethyl ether. The Gutmann acceptor number (AN) of these solvate ionic liquids has also been determined by 31P NMR spectroscopy to be 26.5, thus being modest Lewis acids.
