Applications of Ionic Liquids in Organic Electronic Devices
We review applications of ionic liquids (ILs) in organic electronic devices. ILs are a new type of materials and have outstanding features unlike conventional compounds, giving novel functions to organic electronic devices. First, we give a general explanation of ILs. Next, we review applications of ILs in some organic electronic devices such as organic light emitting devices, photovoltaics, and organic field effect transistors. Finally, we remark on the outlook for future IL applications in organic electronic devices.
