Deep eutectic solvents formed between choline chloride and carboxylic acids: versatile alternatives to ionic liquids.
It is shown that the conductivity and viscosity of these liquids is controlled by ion mobility and the availability of voids of suitable dimensions, and this is consistent with the fluidity of other ionic liquids and molten salts. Expand
Extraction of glycerol from biodiesel into a eutectic based ionic liquid
A Lewis basic mixture of quaternary ammonium salts with glycerol has been used to extract excess glycerol from biodiesel formed from the reaction of triglycerides with ethanol in the presence of KOH.Expand
Application of hole theory to define ionic liquids by their transport properties.
The conductivity, viscosity, density, and surface tension of a number of glycolic mixtures with choline chloride are measured and it is proposed that the composition at which the measured conductivity matches the theoretical value is the point at which hole mobility becomes the dominant mechanism for charge mobility.

Preparation of novel, moisture-stable, Lewis-acidic ionic liquids containing quaternary ammonium salts with functional side chains.
A range of novel, moisture-stable, Lewis-acidic ionic liquids has been prepared by mixing appropriate molar ratios of MCl2 and quaternary ammonium salts and the influence of substituent Y and metal M on the physical properties of the melts has been investigated. Expand
Glycerol eutectics as sustainable solvent systems
The physical properties of choline chloride mixtures with glycerol are quantified and it is shown that eutectic mixtures can circumvent some of the difficulties of using Glycerol as a solvent viz. high viscosity and high melting point. Expand
Molecular motion and ion diffusion in choline chloride based deep eutectic solvents studied by 1H pulsed field gradient NMR spectroscopy.
The first pulsed field gradient nuclear magnetic resonance (PFG-NMR) study of DESs found the diffusion mechanism was found to be the same as for ionic liquids with discrete anions, which highlights that the molecular structure of the hydrogen bond donor can greatly affect the mobility of the whole system.
