One-phase synthesis of gold and platinum nanoparticles using new thiol-functionalized ionic liquids (TFILs) is described for the first time. TFILs as stabilizing agents for gold and platinum nanoparticles were designed to have thiol groups on either the cation or anion and symmetrical or unsymmetrical positions only in the cation. Transmission electron… (More)
For possible future use in Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and/or Photothermal Therapy (PTT) of cancer and screening of cancer cells a new type of ionic liquid photosensitizer -Cholinium-Purpurin-18 (Chol-Pu-18) - was synthesized and small gold (Au) nanoparticles, stabilized by this photosensitizer were prepared without adding any particular reducing agents and… (More)
For the purpose of developing new disinfectants and antiseptics, we searched for compounds having high bactericidal activity against gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, and fungi. Three different series of quaternary imidazolium and pyrrolidinonium salts were synthesized: series A (1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium chlorides and bromides); series B… (More)
Ionic liquids based on N-alkyl-N-methylmorpholinium salts have been synthesized and the physical and electrochemical characteristics of this family of ionic liquids have been investigated for use as electrolytes.
The first examples of room temperature ionic liquids, containing N-alkyl-N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidinonium (N-alkyl-N-vinyl-gamma-butyrolactam) cations in combination with bromide and tetrafluoroborate anions, have been synthesized and the spectroscopic and physical characteristics of this family of ionic liquids have been investigated for intended use as liquid… (More)
