In this work, we investigated the effects of a single covalent link between hydrogen bond donor species on the behavior of deep eutectic solvents (DESs) and shed light on the resulting interactions at molecular scale that influence the overall physical nature of the DES system. We have compared sugar-based DES mixtures, 1:2 choline chloride/glucose [DES(g)] and 1:1 choline chloride/trehalose [DES(t)]. Trehalose is a disaccharide composed of two glucose units that are connected by an α-1,4… 



Quantum Chemical Insight into the Interactions and Thermodynamics Present in Choline Chloride Based Deep Eutectic Solvents.

The sum of the bond orders of the choline-Cl(-) interactions in the DESs correlates directly with the melting temperatures of theDESs, a correlation that offers insight into the effect of the tuning of theCholine-Bond interactions by the hydrogen-bond donors on the physical properties of the DES's.

Self-aggregation of sodium dodecyl sulfate within (choline chloride + urea) deep eutectic solvent.

The first clear lines of evidence for self-aggregation of an anionic surfactant within a DES containing a small fraction of water are presented, and significant enhancement in the solubility of organic solvents that are otherwise not miscible in choline chloride-based DESs is achieved within Reline in the presence of SDS.

Molecular dynamic simulations and vibrational analysis of an ionic liquid analogue.

The results from both molecular simulations and experimental IR spectroscopy support the idea that key interactions between the moieties in the eutectic mixture interrupt the main interactions within the parent substances and are responsible for the decrease in freezing point.

Deep eutectic solvents: sustainable media for nanoscale and functional materials.

An overview of DESs as designer solvents to create well-defined nanomaterials including shape-controlled nanoparticles, electrodeposited films, metal-organic frameworks, colloidal assemblies, hierarchically porous carbons, and DNA/RNA architectures is provided.

Differential Microscopic Mobility of Components within a Deep Eutectic Solvent.

When the diffusion dynamics are analyzed on the subnanometer length scale, it is found that the displacements associated with the localized diffusive motions are actually larger for choline than for glycerol.

Deep eutectic solvents: syntheses, properties and applications.

All works discussed in this review aim at demonstrating that Deep Eutectic Solvents not only allow the design of eco-efficient processes but also open a straightforward access to new chemicals and materials.

Laplacian and bond critical point properties of the electron density distributions of sulfide bonds: A comparison with oxide bonds

Abstract Topological and bond critical point properties of electron density distributions, ρ(r), were calculated for a series of sulfide molecules, containing first- and second-row main group

Liquid structure of the choline chloride-urea deep eutectic solvent (reline) from neutron diffraction and atomistic modelling

The liquid structure of the archetypal Deep Eutectic Solvent (DES) reline, a 1 : 2 molar mixture of choline chloride and urea, has been determined at 303 K. This is the first reported liquid-phase

Deep Eutectic Solvents: A Review of Fundamentals and Applications.

A detailed review of the current literature reveals the lack of predictive understanding of the microscopic mechanisms that govern the structure-property relationships in deep eutectic solvents, and highlights recent research efforts to elucidate the next steps needed to develop a fundamental framework needed for a deeper understanding.
