Henry reaction can be accelerated by basic ionic liquid 1-methyl-3-butylimidazolium hydroxide ([bmIm]OH) as catalyst and reaction medium with good yields in short time at room temperature. This strategy is general and works with a broad range of aldehydes. The recovered [bmIm]OH can be recycled with consistent activity.

Keywords: Henry reaction, basic ionic liquid, 1-methyl-3-butylimidazolium hydroxide, [bmIm]OH, catalyst, recycle
