[reaction: see text] The ionic liquid butylmethylimidazolium tetrachloroferrate (bmim-FeCl(4)) was found to be a very effective and completely air stable catalyst for the biphasic Grignard cross-coupling with primary and secondary alkyl halides bearing beta-hydrogens. After simply decanting the product in the ethereal layer, the ionic liquid catalyst was successfully recycled four times.
