Characterising room temperature ionic liquids with acoustic wave devices
Data for the physical properties of Room Temperature Ionic Liquids (RTILs) as a function of chemical composition is limited due to the expense and difficulty of producing large volumes of pure samples for characterization. RTILs comprise solely of ions and are liquid at... View more
