A simple, efficient, facile and eco-friendly process for the synthesis of thioamides from nitriles using 1,6-bis(3-methylimidazolium-1-yl)hexane chloride [C6(mim)2Cl2] as a dicationic ionic liquid (DIL) was developed. The ionic liquid was easily separated from the reaction mixture and was recycled at least four times without any loss of its activity.
