Abstract

Building electrochemical activity into ionic liquids extends their practical potential beyond acting as inert electrolytes or solvents to being multi-functional electro-materials with a myriad of application including in energy harvesting and storage. This review looks back briefly to their origins and goes on to outline and discuss recent important developments in the field. The prospect for these useful new materials is also discussed.
