Abstract: The aim of this proposed work is to evaluate the effects of how the hydrogen-bonding networkspresent in glycerol change upon addition of choline chloride forming a Deep Eutectic Solvent(DES). This will be the first time that the liquid structure of DESs - important liquids within thegreen chemistry portfolio along-side ionic liquids etc - have been studied using total neutronscattering. The successful outcome of this study will lead to direct understanding of how the keyinteractions between the two components of a DES lead to the remarkable materials properties.That is, the formation of fluids with remarkable liquid ranges, large depression of melting points,and many of the features associated with ionic liquids such as conductivity and low volatility.
