Special Issue on Ionic Liquids



May-June 2010





Ionic liquids: New materials with wide applications




















Nageshewar D Khupse* & Anil Kumar




Ionic liquids have emerged as possible substitutes for volatile organic solvents. The special properties of ionic liquids that render these unique solvent media useful in chemical transformations, electrochemical applications, extractions, etc., have been reviewed.







Time-resolved studies of photoinduced processes in room temperature ionic liquids






















Aniruddha Paul* & Anunay Samanta




Photophysical studies carried out in room temperature ionic liquids have been discussed with explicit focus on those involving time-resolved measurements.








Ionic liquid microemulsions and their technological applications


























S K Mehta* & Khushwinder Kaur




Applications of ionic liquid microemulsions as oil substitutes, water substitutes, co-surfactants (additives) and surfactants are summarized.









Solvation dynamics in imidazolium and phosphonium ionic liquids: Effects of solute motion






























Hemant K Kashyap & Ranjit Biswas*




Theoretical studies on the effects of rotational and translational motions of a dissolved dipolar probe on the Stokes’ shift dynamics in representative non-dipolar and dipolar ionic liquids are presented.









Temperature dependent solvation dynamics in an ionic liquid containing microemulsions of 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate / Triton X–100/ cyclohexane

Solvation dynamics and red-edge effect of two electrically charged solutes in an imidazolium ionic liquid






















Dinesh Chandra Khara & Anunay Samanta*




Steady state and time-resolved fluorescence behavior of negatively charged 1-anilinonaphthalene-8-sulfonate and positively charged ethidium bromide have been studied in [bmim][BF4].








Molecular dynamics simulation of model room temperature ionic liquids with divalent anions















S G Raju & S Balasubramanian*




Intermolecular structure, dynamics and intermediate range structure in a model ionic liquid, whose cation and anion are mono- and di-valent respectively, have been explored.






Temperature dependent viscosity of mixtures of ionic liquids at different compositions


















Nageshwar D Khupse, Shabana R Kurolikar &
Anil Kumar*




Temperature dependence of viscosities of [bmim][BF4] + [bmim][PF6] and [hmim][BF4] + [hmim][PF6] mixtures has been analysed in the light of Vogel-Fulcher-Tammann equation with excellent accuracy.







Temperature dependent densities of mixtures of
1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate + poly(ethylene glycol)














Shruti Trivedi & Siddharth Pandey*









Density and ultrasonic sound speed measurements for N,N-dimethylformamide with ionic liquids












Pankaj Attri, P Madhusudan Reddy &
P Venkatesu*




Molecular interactions between DMF and ionic liquids have been studied on the basis of thermophysical properties such as densities and ultrasonic sound speeds over the entire composition range at 25 °C under atmospheric pressure.





Ionic liquid incorporated polymer electrolytes for supercapacitor application
