Abstract

Research on nonaqueous microemulsions containing ionic liquids as polar and/or apolar phase, respectively, is growing at a fast rate. One key property of ionic liquids that highlights their potential and their diversification compared to water is their wide liquid temperature range. In this emerging-area review article we survey recent developments in the field of nonaqueous micellar solutions and microemulsions containing ionic liquids in general with a strong emphasis on the effect of temperature in particular. Various systems are discussed and compared to their aqueous counterparts.
