The surface structure of trimethylpropylammonium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide ([TMPA] [TFSI]) is studied by high-resolution Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy at room temperature. The results provide direct evidence of the molecular ordering at the surface. The C1 conformer of the [TFSI] anion is dominant among two stable conformers, and the anions are oriented with their CF3 groups pointing toward the vacuum in the outermost molecular layer. The anions in the second molecular layer… Expand

Surface analysis of ionic liquids with and without lithium salt using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
TLDR
Results show that the planar type isomer of the EMI(+) cation is dominant at the near-surface region of EMI-Tf(2)N, and proposed models for the preferred orientation of the ions exhibit good agreement with results obtained from the DV-Xα calculations. Expand

TLDR
Although both measurements show surface segregation of [C10MIM] the degrees of the segregation are different, the observed discrepancy can be attributed to the difference in the probing depth between HRBS and TOF-SIMS. Expand
