Supramolecular Ionic-Liquid Gels with High Ionic Conductivity.

Supramolecular ionogels were prepared by the gelation of room-temperature ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([BMIm][BF4 ]) with (S,S)-bis(leucinol)oxalamide. Remarkably, the ionic conductivity of solutions and ionogels with low gelator concentrations is higher than that of neat [BMIm][BF4 ]. On the basis of molecular dynamics… CONTINUE READING
