Neutron datasets from ISIS, RB1410172

Abstract: This proposal follows on from earlier studies on ionic liquid-aromatic charge transfer complexes (see Ref. [ ]), and from the investigation of the effects of immobilisation within an ionogel matrix on the ability of the ionic liquids to form charge-transfer complexes (RB1320201, beam-time scheduled for 26 Oct 2013). In this continuation of the studies, we propose to examine the effects of covalently tethering the ionic liquid receptor cation within an ionogel matrix by incorporating a triethoxysilyl-pendant group. This will immobilise the CT-complex within the ionogel through covalent chemical bonds, contrasting with the physisorbed ion liquids present in our most recent studies. This research on immobilised CT-active aromatic sensors forms the basis of the PhD work of Mr Adam Turner (supported through a Northern Ireland, Department of Education and Learning studentship).
