- Deep eutectic solvents formed by solid azolide ionic liquids and ethylene glycol (EG) can efficiently capture CO₂. Surprisingly, NMR and FTIR results indicated that CO₂ reacted with the –OH group of EG to form a carbonate species rather than reacting with azolide anions to form a carbamate species during the absorption process.
