Abstract

Many ionic liquids (ILs), and their mixtures and solutions are amphiphilically nanostructured. Here we review recent advances towards understanding the nature of this nanostructure in ionic ILs and related mixtures and solutions, both in bulk and at or near macroscopic interfaces. We propose nanostructure is key for realising the designer solvent promise of ILs, and highlight its potential for translation to new generations of low-cost and environmentally sustainable cation and anion motifs for large-scale applications.
