Methods were developed in order to control the hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties of anionic amphiphilic protic ionic liquids with hyperbranched structures. The structurizing ability of the compounds in the condensed state depends on the ratio of hydrophilic and hydrophobic components. Self-organization with the formation of nanosized assemblies in aqueous solution and at the interface also depends on change in the pH and ionic strength of the medium. The obtained data form the basis for creation of materials with promising ionic liquid properties for various electrochemical devices and transport media.
