Ionic liquids (ILs) are promising class of material for CO2 separations. In this work{,} CO2 reactive triazolides ILs were synthesized and characterized with the aim of developing deeper understanding on how structural changes affect the overall properties for CO2 separation. Important insights were gained illustrating the effects of substituents on the anion. It was found that substituents play a crucial role in dictating the overall physical properties of reactive ionic liquids. Depending upon the electronic and steric nature of the substituent{,} CO2 capacities between 0.07-0.4 mol CO2/mol IL were observed. Detailed spectroscopic{,} CO2 absorption{,} rheological{,} and simulation studies were carried out to understand the nature and influence of these substituents. The effect of water content was also evaluated{,} and it was found that water had an unexpected impact on the properties of these materials{,} resulting in an increased viscosity{,} but little change in the CO2 reactivity." } #+ENDSRC
