Functionalized ionic liquids (FILs) synthesized with specific desired chemical properties have shown promising results in various areas of organic synthesis. In supported organic synthesis, FILs have become known as a new alternative to commonly used PEG and fluorous soluble supports. This review summarizes the progress of recent development in the synthesis of functionalized ionic liquids with emphasis on their applications as reagents and scavengers in organic synthesis.
