Thesis title: Ionic Liquids as functional solvents- from catalysis to energy storage

Supervisors: Thomas MASCHMEYER , Anthony MASTERS

Thesis abstract:

Ionic Liquids (ILs) are defined as salts that have a melting point below 100 degrees celcius, and have been at the forefront of research for the past decade. This body of research explores the role of ILs as catalysts, as mediums to remove byproducts of fuels (such as nitrogen and sulfur) and the role they play in the electrochemical processes for reversible energy storage devices. Through an understanding of the fundametal properties of ILs in each of these applications, an appreciation for ILs is gained.
