We reported a molecular dynamics simulation study of a mixture of 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluoroborate([C8MIN]+[PF6]‒), an ionic liquid, and pristine graphene. Our simulations were performed under various conditions, including several temperatures and distances between graphene plates. By studying the liquid structure of the ionic-liquid graphene mixture, we found that the transition for the ionic liquids entering the middle of two graphene plates should occur within 1.00 and 1.50 nm in the temperature range studied(300―600 K). We also studied the pair correlations between the graphene plates and the head and tail of the cation and the anion. Our study at the molecular level can aid in understanding the detailed molecular structure of the mixture.
