Ionic liquid-derived charged polymers to show highly thermoresponsive LCST-type transition with water at desired temperatures

Author affiliations

Abstract

A polymerised ionic liquid (poly(IL)) having suitable hydrophobicity undergoes a strongly temperature-sensitive LCST-type phase transition with pure water and also with aqueous salt solution, and the resulting hydrated poly(IL) further undergoes a sharp and reversible liquid-to-gel transition at ambient temperatures.
