Sponsor(s): Royal Society of Chemistry

Room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are currently the focus of an intense research effort because of their remarkable potential for applications coupled to favourable environmental properties. This meeting will discuss fundamental experimental and theoretical aspects of the physical chemistry of RTILs.

Ionic Liquids: Faraday Discussion 154
22 - 24 August 2011
Queen's University, Belfast, UK

RTILs constitute a new and exciting playground for interdisciplinary research in soft condensed matter. 

The main aims of the meeting are: 

  • To bring together experts in complex fluids, ionic systems and soft condensed matter sharing a common interest in charged fluids. 
  • To examine the state of the art of experimental and theoretical developments regarding thermodynamics, interfacial behavior, microscopic structure and molecular dynamics of ionic liquids. 
  • To highlight emerging problems, identify new research directions and maximize the dissemination of information.
  • To promote the interest of young scientists and students allowing a forum for them to interact with experts in ionic and molecular soft condensed matter.

Topic: conferences, chemistry, networking, ionic liquids Audience: professional chemists, industrial chemists, postgraduate students, undergraduates, universities, research scientists, professors, physicists
