Polymeric ionic liquids: Broadening the properties and applications of polyelectrolytes
The introduction of new ionic moieties, cations and anions, is extending the properties and classical applications of polyelectrolytes. These new polyelectrolytes are being named polymeric ionicExpand
Controlled Synthesis of Polymer Brushes by “Living” Free Radical Polymerization Techniques
The preparation of a wide variety of unique polymer brush structures can be accomplished by “living” free radical polymerization of vinyl monomers from surface-tethered alkoxyamines or from tetheredExpand
Poly(ionic liquid)s: An update
Abstract This review presents a literature survey of recent work on poly(ionic liquid)s or polymerized ionic liquids (PILs), a class of polyelectrolytes that has attracted rapidly increasing interestExpand
Ionic Liquids and Cellulose: Dissolution, Chemical Modification and Preparation of New Cellulosic Materials
This review summarizes the recent advances in the development of new cellulose materials and technologies using ionic liquids to develop new processing technologies, cellulose functionalization methods and new cellulOSE materials including blends, composites, fibers and ion gels. Expand
Ternary polymer electrolytes containing pyrrolidinium-based polymeric ionic liquids for lithium batteries
Abstract The electrochemical properties of solvent-free, ternary polymer electrolytes based on a novel poly(diallyldimethylammonium) bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide polymeric ionic liquid (PIL) asExpand
Polymeric ionic liquids for CO2 capture and separation: potential, progress and challenges
The increasing level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is a big threat to the environment and plays a key role towards global warming and climate change. In this context to combat suchExpand
Development of safe, green and high performance ionic liquids-based batteries (ILLIBATT project)
Safety tests showed that the introduction of these alternative electrolytes positively contribute to the safety of the batteries, and showed that such ionic liquids-based prototypes are able to display high capacity, high coulombic efficiency and high cycle life. Expand
Enzymatic polyester synthesis in ionic liquids
The enzymatic synthesis of polyesters by ring-opening polymerization (ROP) and polycondensation in three ionic liquids, i.e., [bmim][Tf2N], [bmim][PF6] and [bmim][BF4] was investigated. For theExpand
Synthesis and characterization of polypyrrole-graft-poly(ε-caprolactone) copolymers: new electrically conductive nanocomposites
Abstract A series of polypyrrole-graft-poly(e-caprolactone) (PPy-g-PCL) copolymers have been synthesized via oxidative copolymerization of pyrrole and pyrrole-end functional macromonomers.Expand
