Alkyl-chain dividing layer at an alcohol/ionic liquid buried interface studied by sum-frequency generation vibrational spectroscopy

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate for the first time the formation of a non-polar alkyl-chain dividing layer between a room-temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) and an n-alcohol. This newly described non-polar interfacial layer, which should be more hydrophobic than both RTIL and alcohol phases, might find applications in liquid/liquid reaction systems, or serve as a soft nano-functional space.
