The first cadmium-based ionic liquids (ILs) have been developed, along with a family of cadmium dialkyldithiocarbamate salts, (cation)[Cd(R2dtc)3], in the pursuit of single source molecular precursors that thermolyse to form cadmium sulfide. Pyrrolidinium cadmium dialkyldithiocarbamate salts, (C4C1py)[Cd(R2dtc)3], salts were established to be ILs through thorough thermal and structural investigation.
