Nucleic acid sample storage is of paramount importance in biotechnology and forensic sciences. Very recently, hydrated ionic liquids (ILs) have been identified as ideal media for long-term DNA storage. Hence, understanding the binding characteristics and molecular mechanism of interactions of ILs with DNA is of both practical and fundamental interest. Here,(More)
Ionic liquids (ILs) are emerging as a novel class of solvents in chemical and biochemical research. Their range of applications further expands when a small quantity of water is added. Thus, the past decade has seen extensive research on IL/water binary mixtures. While the thermophysical properties of most of these mixtures exhibited the expected trend, few(More)
Research on nucleobases has always been on the forefront owing to their ever-increasing demand in the pharmaceutical, agricultural, and other industries. The applications, however, became limited due to their poor solubility in water. Recently, ionic liquids (ILs) have emerged as promising solvents for nucleobase dissolution, as they exhibit >100-fold(More)
Ionic liquid/water binary mixtures are rapidly gaining popularity as solvents for dissolution of cellulose, nucleobases, and other poorly water-soluble biomolecules. Hence, several studies have focused on measuring the thermophysical properties of these versatile mixtures. Among these, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ([emim]) cation-based ILs containing(More)
