Due to their potential for high energy density, low cost, and environmental sustainability, zinc-ion batteries (ZIBs) have emerged as a promising energy storage technology. The performance, safety, and overall efficiency of ZIBs are significantly impacted by the properties of the electrolyte, such as ionic conductivity, electrochemical stability window, viscosity, and compatibility with other battery components. The use of ionic liquids (ILs) in ZIBs has gained extensive attention in recent years due to their desirable properties, such as high thermal stability, low volatility, wide electrochemical window, and tunable physicochemical properties. Therefore, this paper provides a bibliometric analysis of recent advances in the use of ILs as electrolytes in ZIBs. Current research trends, authorship patterns, and publications of ILs in ZIBs are analyzed. Our review reveals a growing interest in the use of ILs as electrolytes in ZIBs, and the development of novel ILs with tailored properties to meet the specific requirements of ZIBs is of a specific focus. This paper provides insights into the recent advancements and future research directions in the field of ILs as electrolytes for ZIBs.
