      A novel ionic liquid (IL) based on catalytic functional metal rhenium, [Smim][ReO4] (1-heptyl-3- methyl-imidazolium perrhenate) was synthesized and characterized. Density and surface tension values of the IL were determined at different temperatures, and the volume and surface properties were calculated and discussed, respectively. Furthermore, the synthesized ionic liquid [Smim][ReO4] was used as a green solvent and catalyst for homogeneous catalyzed epoxidation of olefin with urea hydrogen peroxide (UHP) oxidant. The effect of factors of catalyst, oxidant, reaction time, and reaction temperature was discussed. The conversion of cyclohexene and cyclooctene is over 99% at optimum conditions. The IL [Smim][ReO4] as catalyst and solvent are characterized by high efficiency, long service life and recoverability, which is a better green homogeneous catalyst for epoxidation of olefins

      A novel IL based on catalytic functional metal rhenium, [Smim][ReO4] was synthesized and characterized. The volume and surface properties were calculated and discussed by the density and surface tension values at different temperatures, respectively. Furthermore, the as-synthesized [Smim][ReO4] was used as a green solvent and catalyst for homogeneous catalyzed epoxidation of olefin with urea hydrogen peroxide (UHP) oxidant. The results showed that the yield and selectivity of the reaction were up to 99%, and the catalytic efficiency of [Smim][ReO4] did not decrease significantly after five times recycling. Easy separation, recycle, nontoxicity and homogeneous catalysis are the main advantages of perrhenate ionic liquids over other heterogeneous catalysts containing organic solvents.
