The isomerization of endo-tetrahydrodicyclopentadiene (endo-THDCPD) to its exo-isomer (JP-10) has been investigated by using chloroaluminate ionic liquids (ILs) as catalysts. The catalyst activity and selectivity could be optimized by varying the mole fraction of AlCl(3) in the IL. Undesirable by-products derived from side-reactions such as skeletal rearrangement, alkylation, cracking, and dimerization could be minimized by appropriate catalyst design and adjustment of the reaction conditions. The catalyst system was further optimized by selecting 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride as the basic IL and adding 0.60-0.65 mole fraction of AlCl(3) as the promoter. Using the optimized catalyst system, the isomerization of endo-THDCPD to exo-THDCPD proceeded at a fast rate at 50 degrees C with 98.9% conversion and 100% selectivity. The catalyst longevity has been demonstrated by recycling the IL several times without a noticeable reduction in catalytic activity. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
