About this book

This volume describes the most recent findings on the structure of ILs interpreted through cutting-edge experimental and theoretical methods. Research in the field of ionic liquids (ILs) keeps a fast and steady pace. Since these new-generation molten salts first appeared in the chemistry and physics landscape, a large number of new compounds has been synthesized. Most of them display unexpected behaviour and possess stunning properties. The coverage in this book ranges from the mesoscopic structure of ILs to their interaction with proteins. The reader will learn how diffraction techniques (small and large angle X-Ray and neutron scattering, powder methods), X-Ray absorption spectroscopies (EXAFS/XANES), optical methods (IR, RAMAN), NMR and calorimetric methods can help the study of ILs, both as neat liquids and in mixtures with other compounds. It will enable the reader to choose the best method to suit their experimental needs. A detailed survey of theoretical methods, both quantum-chemical and classical, and of their predictive power will accompany the exposition of experimental ones. This book is a must read for postgraduate students, for post-docs, and for researchers who are interested in understanding the structural properties of ILs.

About the authors

Professor Ruggero Caminiti is the director of the X-ray Diffraction Lab of the Chemistry Department of the University of Rome La Sapienza. His research interests encompass liquid, amorphous and polymer structures through the full spectrum of physicochemical characterization techniques. With an h-index of 33 (ISI),  he has a long standing interest in new experimental techniques for soft and biological systems and holds the patent for the EDXD diffractometer.

Dr. Lorenzo Gontrani is currently associated with CNR-ISM Rome Tor Vergata. His research interests lie in the fields of physical chemistry, MD simulations, ab initio calculations, molecular modeling and X-Ray diffraction. He has an h-index of 13.
