Abstract

A novel ionic mixtures of an imidazolium based room-temperature ionic liquid (IL) containing ethylene oxide functionalized phosphite anions with a lithium salt was reported that was able to self-assemble into smectic ordered IL crystals. The [DMIm][MPEGP] compound, featuring an ethylene oxide chain grafted on the phosphite anion, was synthesized through a two-step reaction. The transparent room-temperature IL product of [DMIm][MPEGP] revealed no melting behavior, but a glass transition temperature at -67°C as obtained via DSC analysis. The experimental temperature window was limited up to 200°C due to the thermal instability of the IL at higher temperatures. The synchrotron SAXS profiles for the IL and ionic mixtures with varied amounts of LiTf 2 N at room temperature. Meanwhile, the ionic mixtures with intermediate salt concentrations revealed characteristic scattering peaks, indicating the presence of structural regularity.
