Lower critical solution temperature (LCST) phase behaviour of an ionic liquid and its control by supramolecular host–guest interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Lower critical solution temperature (LCST) phase behaviour of an imidazolium-based ionic liquid is reported, which can be controlled by concentration, the choice of cation, anion and solvent, and by supramolecular host–guest complex formation. Molecular dynamics simulations provide insight into the molecular basis of this LCST phenomenon. This thermo-responsive system has potential applications in cloud point extraction processes.
