The cavitation bubble temperatures in a room-temperature ionic iquid, 1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium-ethyl sulfate (EMIS), are presented that have been estimated using the methyl radical recombination (MRR) method. The temperatures measured in pure EMIS are of the same order as those observed in other solvents, that is, in the range of 3000-5000 K. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
