主讲内容：Functional materials using or in the presence of ionic liquids represents a burgeoning direction in materials chemistry. Ionic liquids are a family of non-conventional molten salts that can act as both functional materials and solvents. They offer many advantages, such as negligible vapor pressures, wide liquidus ranges, good thermal stability, tunable solubility of both organic and inorganic molecules, and ion conductivity. The unique solvation environment of these ionic liquids provides new reaction and separation media for controlling many energy-related processes. We have recently developed a class of ionic liquids with intrinsic porosities based on nanoscopic building blocks.1 Challenges and opportunities in synthesizing and using these porous ionic liquids in energy-related applications will be discussed.
