Ionic Liquids: From Fundamental Properties to Practical Applications


About this book

Over the last three years, there has been an increase in the range of ionic liquids utilised and significant advances in our understanding of the fundamental aspects of these materials. Therefore, the time is apt for Faraday Discussions to provide a foundation for future fundamental challenges and theories that need to be developed to move the subject area forward.

This meeting follows on from Faraday Discussion 154 held in 2011 and discusses a range of topics, such as ionicity, structure, electrochemistry, phase behaviour, and introduce areas which were only emerging at that point, such as interactions with liquid and solid interfaces.

Ionic liquids have been the focus of intense research over the last 20 years because of their remarkable potential for applications coupled to favourable environmental properties. Ionic liquids are also a medium whereby the nature of the complex interactions (Coulombic, van der Waals and hydrogen bonding) provides a liquid whose structure and properties can be tuned by the choice of the cation and anion wherein reactions are likely to be distinct in terms of activity and selectivity profiles compared with common molecular solvents.

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2014) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 4.606.
