Room-temperature ionic liquid (RTIL), N-methyl-N-propylpyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide ([P(13)][Tf(2)N]), was substituted for polar water and formed nonaqueous microemulsions with benzene by the aid of nonionic surfactant TX-100. The phase behavior of the ternary system was investigated, and microregions of [P(13)][Tf(2)N]-in-benzene(More)
The effect of the addition of cosolvents in the room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ethyl sulfate ([Emim][EtSO(4)]) was probed by the solvent and rotational relaxation studies of coumarin 153 in neat ionic liquid [Emim][EtSO(4)] and [Emim][EtSO(4)]-cosolvent mixtures by using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence(More)
Room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs), N,N,N-trimethyl-N-propyl ammonium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl) imide ([N(3111)][Tf(2)N]), were substituted for polar water and formed nonaqueous microemulsions with cyclohexane by the aid of nonionic surfactant TX-100. The phase behavior of the ternary system was investigated, and microregions of(More)
In this work, we have reported the application of less familiar ethylene glycol-AOT reverse micelle for the synthesis of silver nanoparticle using glucose as mild reducing agent and isooctane as the continuous media. We have also studied the pure ethylene glycol-AOT reverse micelle and the perturbed reverse micelle (containing silver nanoparticle in its(More)
In this paper, we have investigated the photophysics of 1-ethyl-2-(4-(p-dimethylaminophenyl)-1,3-butadienyl)pyridinium perchlorate (LDS-698) molecule in dioxane-water mixture and in a room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([bmim][BF4]). Both photoisomerization and twisted intramolecular charge transfer (TICT) are(More)
In this work we have shown a comparative study of changes in physicochemical properties of an aqueous solution of a common cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) upon addition of two protic ionic liquids N,N-dimethylethanolammonium [corrected] hexanoate (DAH) and N,N-dimethylethanolammonium [corrected] formate (DAF). The aim of this(More)
In this article we have studied Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) using 2-aminopurine (2-AP), a structural isomer of adenine as donor and various Coumarins as acceptors inside AROSOL-OT (AOT)-water reverse micelles (RM) using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopies. We have used three sets of FRET and all the pairs except(More)
A study of the temperature-dependent solvation dynamics of coumarin-480 in [bmim][BF4]/Triton X-100/cyclohexane microemulsions at three different temperatures (299 K, 308 K and 317 K) is reported. The solvation dynamics of a room temperature ionic liquid in microemulsions becomes faster with increase in temperature. Dynamic light scattering measurements(More)
Carbohydrates are known to serve as an abundant, diverse, and reusable source of carbon, but their derivatization for industrial applications is still a challenging task because of their low solubility in solvents other than water; they are only sparingly soluble in common organic solvents as well as in weakly coordinating ionic liquids, such as(More)
In this work, we reported a detailed study of the solvation dynamics of coumarin-480 in [bmim][BF(4)]/BHDC/benzene reverse micelles (RMs) with varying [bmim][BF(4)]/BHDC molar ratio (R) 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, and also study the solvation dynamics at five different temperatures from 15 to 35 °C RMs at [bmim][BF(4)]/BHDC molar ratio 1.25 for the first time.
