(Figure Presented) Aromatic molecules have a strong affinity for silver(I) and dissolve to a limited extent in Ag0.51K0.42Na 0.07NO3, a low-melting eutectic mixture of silver, potassium, and sodium nitrates. Aromatic nitration in this inorganic ionic liquid leads to products which arise from nonelectrophilic substitution pathways.
