Vitrification as an approach to cryopreservation.
Some of the principles of vitrification are reviewed, the current state of the art is described, how a practical vitrification scheme might work, and how the principles relate to and illuminate the principles and practices of freezing are noted. Expand
Electrodeposition from Ionic Liquids
PREFACE BASIC CONSIDERATIONS OF DEPOSITION IN IONIC LIQUIDS SYNTHESIS OF IONIC LIQUIDS AlCl3 Based First Generation Ionic Liquids Air and Water Stable Ionic Liquids Deep Eutectic SolventsExpand
Ionic-liquid materials for the electrochemical challenges of the future.
The goal in this review is to survey the recent key developments and issues within ionic-liquid research in these areas, and to generate interest in the wider community and encourage others to make use of ionic liquids in tackling scientific challenges. Expand
Sugars exert a major influence on the vitrification properties of ethylene glycol-based solutions and have low toxicity to embryos and oocytes.
It is concluded that added sugars do contribute to a solutions overall vitrification properties, and their properties should be taken into consideration when vitrification solutions are being designed or modified. Expand
Vitrification properties of solutions of ethylene glycol in saline containing PVP, Ficoll, or dextran.
The tested polymers differ in how they interact with ethylene glycol-based vitrification solutions, indicating that the total solute concentration required for vitrification could be estimated with reasonable accuracy from the sum of the individual components. Expand
Energy applications of ionic liquids
Ionic liquids offer a unique suite of properties that make them important candidates for a number of energy related applications. Cation–anion combinations that exhibit low volatility coupled withExpand
Phosphonium-Based Ionic Liquids: An Overview
Phosphonium cation-based ionic liquids (ILs) are a readily available family of ILs that in some applications offer superior properties as compared to nitrogen cation-based ILs. Applications recentlyExpand
Dissolution of feather keratin in ionic liquids
Keratin from various livestock industries is currently a waste material that has potential as a source of polyamide polymers that could replace fossil fuel derived materials if processing methods canExpand
Use of Ionic Liquids for π-Conjugated Polymer Electrochemical Devices
π-Conjugated polymers that are electrochemically cycled in ionic liquids have enhanced lifetimes without failure and fast cycle switching speeds and anions such as tetrafluoroborate or hexafluorophosphate showed negligible loss in electroactivity. Expand
Protein solubilising and stabilising ionic liquids.
We report a family of biocompatible ionic liquids (ILs) which are able to dissolve significant amounts of proteins such as cytochrome c and in which ATR-FTIR spectroscopy results show retention ofExpand
