Lead
Lay summary
The objectives of this project are to overcome the current limitations of ionic liquid research, viz. having theoretical methods that give experimentalist predictive powers, while at the same time overcoming a specific problem, i.e. producing thermally stable ionic liquids with sufficiently low melting points and lower viscosities than those presently available. A further objective is to evaluate all the low viscosity ionic liquids as electrolytes in solar cells (and potentially otherapplications) in order to increase their efficiency.
