Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ionic liquids (ILs) are a distinct and useful class of functional materials. In the last few years, ILs have attracted much interest for their use as non-aqueous electrolytes in electrochemical applications, where their conductivity and electrochemical stability, together with other interesting features such as negligible vapor pressure and non-flammability, make them the ideal electrolytes for many interesting applications. This special field of electrochemistry has gained special growth, mainly driven by the urgent need for advanced materials of primary relevance for the development of highly efficient and environmentally benign industrial electrochemical processes.

This Special Issue is aimed at covering emerging and promising strategies for the development of sustainable electrochemical processes, focusing on the aspects that drive present and future research. Authors with expertise in such fields of research are strongly encouraged to submit their works for publication in this Special Issue of Molecules in the form of original research or review articles.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Eight new polymerizable ammonium-TFSI ionic liquids were synthesized and characterized with respect to an application in energy storage devices. The ionic liquids feature methacrylate or acrylate termination as polymerizable groups. The preparation was optimized to obtain the precursors and ionic liquids in high yield. All products were characterized by NMR and IR spectroscopy. Phase transition temperatures were obtained by DSC analysis. Density, viscosity and ionic conductivity of the ionic liquids were compared and discussed. The results reveal that the length of attached alkyl groups as well as the methyl group at the polymerizable function have significant influences on the ionic liquids physicochemical properties. Ionic conductivity values vary between 0.264 mS cm−1 for [C2NA,22]TFSI and 0.080 mS cm−1 for [C8NMA,22]TFSI at 25 °C. Viscosity values are within a range of 0.762 Pa s for [C2NA,22]TFSI and 1.522 Pa s for [C6NMA,22]TFSI at 25 °C. Full article
