  1. Ionic Liquids II

Abstract

We discuss some published results and provide new observations concerning the high level of structural complexity that lies behind the nanoscale correlations in ionic liquids (ILs) and their mixtures with molecular liquids. It turns out that this organization is a consequence of the hierarchical construction on both spatial (from ångström to several nanometer) and temporal (from fraction of picosecond to hundreds of nanosecond) scales, which requires joint use of experimental and computational tools.

Keywords

Ionic liquid X-ray and neutron scattering Molecular dynamics simulation Mesoscopic and microscopic structure

Acknowledgements

Access to Large Scale Facilities (ESRF, HZB) through different programs is acknowledged. In particular, the role of instrument local contacts [E. Di Cola (ESRF) and S. Prevost (ESRF)] is gratefully acknowledged. N.P. thanks the industrial advisory board of QUILL for their support. A.T. acknowledges Prof. P. J. Dyson for kindly making available to us the samples containing ether chains. We also acknowledge useful discussions with Prof. J. A. P. Coutinho and E. L. Quitevis (symmetric cations) and Prof. W. Schroer and B. Rathke (PIL–alcohols).
