Polymers in Ionic Liquids: Dawn of Neoteric Solvents and Innovative Materials
In this paper, we review recent advances in the use of polymers in ionic liquids (ILs) from the view point of the “dawn of neoteric solvents and innovative materials.” The first part of this paper ...
Heterogeneous slow dynamics of imidazolium-based ionic liquids studied by neutron spin echo.
We have investigated structure and relaxation phenomena for ionic liquids 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate (C8mimPF6) and bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide (C8mimTFSI) by means ofExpand
Macromolecules in Ionic Liquids: Progress, Challenges, and Opportunities
Ionic liquids (ILs) are ambient temperature molten salts and have attracted considerable attention because of their unique properties such as nonflammability, negligible volatility, high ionicExpand
Lower critical solution temperature behavior of linear polymers in ionic liquids and the corresponding volume phase transition of polymer gels.
Poly(benzyl methacrylate) (PBzMA) and its copolymers exhibit lower critical solution temperature (LCST)-type phase separation in common hydrophobic ionic liquids (ILs) such asExpand
Evolved Colloidosomes Undergoing Cell-like Autonomous Shape Oscillations with Buckling.
In living systems, there are many autonomous and oscillatory phenomena to sustain life, such as heart contractions and breathing. At the microscopic level, oscillatory shape deformations of cells areExpand
Thermosensitive, soft glassy and structural colored colloidal array in ionic liquid: colloidal glass to gel transition.
A novel soft material comprising thermosensitive poly(benzyl methacrylate)-grafted silica nanoparticles (PBnMA-g-NPs) and the ionic liquid (IL), 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethaneExpand

Herein, we summarise the recent developments in self-oscillating polymeric materials based on the concepts of supramolecular chemistry, where aggregates of molecular building blocks with non-covalentExpand
Electrical communication between glucose oxidase and electrodes mediated by phenothiazine-labeled poly(ethylene oxide) bonded to lysine residues on the enzyme surface.
A series of glucose oxidase (GOx) hybrids (GOx-phe-nothiazine-labeled poly(ethylene oxide) (PT-PEO)) capable of direct electrical communication with electrodes is synthesized by covalently modifyingExpand
Amoeba-like self-oscillating polymeric fluids with autonomous sol-gel transition
In the field of polymer science, many kinds of polymeric material systems that show a sol-gel transition have been created. However, most systems are unidirectional stimuli-responsive systems thatExpand
Difference in lower critical solution temperature behavior between random copolymers and a homopolymer having solvatophilic and solvatophobic structures in an ionic liquid.
The solubility and phase behavior of poly(benzyl methacrylate) (PBzMA) and poly(styrene-co-methyl methacrylate) (P(St-co-MMA)) in a hydrophobic ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazoliumExpand
