Abstract

An in situ method of studying the structure of reactive ionic materials in the solid and liquid states by XAFS is described. These salts have novel catalytic and solvent properties, and the results show that their structure may be studied using transmission XAFS by utilizing pressed disks of BN, graphite, and LiF and is not affected by the sample matrix used.
