Laser Deposition Method Lays Down Ionic Liquids
Ionic liquids can be deposited on solid surfaces as thin films and nanoscale droplets, according to researchers in Japan who developed a molecular-beam-based vacuum deposition method for that purpose (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn101036v). Ionic liquids are increasingly being used in chemical synthesis, catalysis, and a variety of energy-related applications. But until now, little has been done to extend the collection of controlled-deposition methods . . .
