Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ionic liquids (ILs) have in the last ten to 15 years attracted an ever growing interest and the number of articles on the subject now easily exceeds 10'000 publications. Many topics such as organic synthesis, catalysis, separation, electrochemistry, and ionic liquid crystals (ILCs) are now well established. Metal containing ILs (M-ILs), in contrast, have so far largely been overlooked and there are only relatively few articles on the synthesis, structure, properties, and applications of metal-containing ILs and ILCs. Recently however, research on the subject has gained some momentum because it has been realized that M-ILs are attractive for a number of applications including catalysis, optical devices, electrochemical and sensing problems, and magnetic components. The current special issue will highlight some of the most recent research on the synthesis, structure, and properties of M-ILs and provide a an overview of the state of the art of M-IL research, development, and application.
