Dimension control of ionic liquids

Author affiliations


Ionic liquids have established themselves as promising soft compounds for bringing innovation to materials science. For further developing functions and abilities of ionic liquids, one of the most important challenges is to organize ionic liquids into dimensionally ordered states. In this feature article, we will present the organization of ionic liquids by endowing them with liquid-crystalline properties. In particular, focusing on the specific abilities and properties of functional ionic liquids, a variety of nanostructured ionic materials have been developed and their unique and enhanced functions have been revealed. Some potential uses of organized ionic liquids have also been mentioned.
