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
Photoreversible gelation of a triblock copolymer in an ionic liquid.
The reversible micellization and sol-gel transition of block copolymer solutions in an ionic liquid (IL) triggered by a photostimulus is described. The ABA triblock copolymer employed, denotedExpand
Photo-Dimerization Induced Dynamic Viscoelastic Changes in ABA Triblock Copolymer-Based Hydrogels for 3D Cell Culture
Cells sense and respond not only to biochemical signals but also to biophysical signals (e.g., matrix elasticity). In addition to matrix elasticity, recent studies have revealed that viscoelasticityExpand
Thermally Reversible Ion Gels with Photohealing Properties Based on Triblock Copolymer Self-Assembly
We describe a functional soft material that can spontaneously repair damage by straightforward application of light illumination. The composite material is composed of a common ionic liquid (IL),Expand
Thermoreversible high-temperature gelation of an ionic liquid with poly(benzyl methacrylate-b-methyl methacrylate-b-benzyl methacrylate) triblock copolymer
In this paper, we describe a novel thermosensitive triblock copolymer in an ionic liquid (IL) that shows a low-temperature-sol–high-temperature-gel transition. A well-defined ABA triblock copolymerExpand
Hierarchical Sol–Gel Transition Induced by Thermosensitive Self-Assembly of an ABC Triblock Polymer in an Ionic Liquid
We investigated a hierarchical morphology change and accompanying sol–gel transition using a doubly thermosensitive ABC-triblock copolymer in an ionic liquid (IL). The triblock copolymer contains twoExpand
Specific solvation of benzyl methacrylate in 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide ionic liquid.
It has been established that poly(benzyl methacrylate) in a room-temperature ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide ([C2mIm(+)][TFSA(-)]), exhibits lowerExpand
Thermoreversible nanogel shuttle between ionic liquid and aqueous phases.
We describe a nanogel that can reversibly shuttle between a hydrophobic ionic liquid (IL) phase and an aqueous phase in response to temperature changes. A thermosensitive diblock copolymer,Expand
Gelation of Solvate Ionic Liquid by Self-Assembly of Block Copolymer and Characterization as Polymer Electrolyte
We report a new class of polymer electrolytes that exhibit high Li+-ionic conductivity and thermal stability up to 200 °C. The polymer electrolyte consists of a solvate ionic liquid ([Li(G4)][TFSA]),Expand
Li+ Ion Transport in Polymer Electrolytes Based on a Glyme-Li Salt Solvate Ionic Liquid
ABSTRACT Polymer electrolytes (PEs) have served as the focus of intensive research as new ion-conducting materials, especially for lithium battery applications. A new strategy to develop fastExpand
