Pyrrolidinium cation-based ionic liquids were synthesized, and their inhibition effects on methane hydrate formation were investigated. It was found that the ionic liquids shifted the hydrate equilibrium line to a lower temperature at a specific pressure, while simultaneously delaying gas hydrate formation.
