ABSTRACT
This Account covers research dating from the early 1960s in the
field of low-melting molten salts and hydrates,which has recently
become popular under the rubric of "ionic liquids". It covers
understanding gained in the principal author's laboratories (initially
in Australia, but mostly in the U.S.A.) from spectroscopic, dynamic,
and thermodynamic studies and includes recent applications of
this understanding in the fields of energy conversion and bio-
preservation. Both protic and aprotic varieties of ionic liquids are
included, but recent studies have focused on the protic class
because of the special applications made possible by the highly
