  • Ambient temperature chloroaluminate ionic liquids are an important class of nonaqueous solvents; they have been used in many process and show promise in high-energy density batteries. The properties of lithium chloride, sodium chloride, and potassium chloride buffered liquids are described.
  • Instrumentation has been developed for measurement of physical properties (viscosity and density) of coal liquids and slurries under conditions typical of those found in coal liquefaction processes such as SRC, H-Coal, and EDS. The instruments are being operated in a flow system designed for slurry rates up to 1 g/s at 810 K and 31 MPa pressure. A capillary tube viscometer and a Norcross falling ring viscometer are used for viscosity measurement. Thus far rheograms (shear rate vs shear stress diagrams) have been determined for 35 wt % Illinois No. 6 coal (-170 mesh) in SRC-I recycle solvent at 13.9more » MPa (2000 psig) for the temperature range of 400 to 700 K. A commercially available gamma radiation absorption instrument has been modified for the operating conditions required and is being used for density measurements. Instruments for measurement of thermal conductivity and heat capacity of coal liquids have been designed for future installation in the facility.« less
  • This work presents the vapor pressure at several temperatures for the 1,3-dialkylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide series, [C{sub N/2}C{sub N/2}im][NTf{sub 2}] (N = 14, 16, 18, and 20), measured by a Knudsen effusion method combined with a quartz crystal microbalance. The thermodynamic properties of vaporization of the ionic liquids under study are analysed together with the results obtained previously for the shorter alkyl chain length [C{sub N/2}C{sub N/2}im][NTf{sub 2}] (N = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12), in order to evaluate the effect of the alkyl side chains of the cation and to get additional insights concerning the nanostructuration of ionic liquids.more » The symmetry effect is explored, based on the comparison with the asymmetric imidazolium based ionic liquids, [C{sub N-1}C{sub 1}im][NTf{sub 2}]. A trend shift on the thermodynamic properties of vaporization along the alkyl side chains of the extended symmetric ionic liquids, around [C{sub 6}C{sub 6}im][NTf{sub 2}], was detected. An intensification of the odd-even effect was observed starting from [C{sub 6}C{sub 6}im][NTf{sub 2}], with higher enthalpies and entropies of vaporization for the odd numbered ionic liquids, [C{sub 7}C{sub 7}im][NTf{sub 2}] and [C{sub 9}C{sub 9}im][NTf{sub 2}]. Similar, but less pronounced, odd-even effect was found for the symmetric ionic liquids with lower alkyl side chains length, [C{sub N/2}C{sub N/2}im][NTf{sub 2}] (with N = 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12). This effect is related with the predominant orientation of the terminal methyl group of the alkyl chain to the imidazolium ring and their influence in the cation-anion interaction. The same Critical Alkyl length at the hexyl, (C{sub 6}C{sub 1}and C{sub 6}C{sub 6}) was found for both asymmetric and symmetric series indicating that the nanostructuration of the ionic liquids is related with alkyl chain length.« less
  • This paper describes rubbery materials of high ionic conductivity dominated by Li transport prepared by dissolution of polypropylene oxide and polyethylene oxide in low melting molten salt mixtures, with and without plasticizing additives. The dominance of Li{sup +} transport is demonstrated by measurements of anion (I{sup {minus}}) diffusivity which show that anions probably contribute less than 1% of the conductivity. The authors also describe experiments using the wide electrochemical window (>5V) polyanionic material obtained by polymerizing lithium vinyl sulfonate. This polymer can also act as a glass formation promoter in salt mixtures and, like other high molecular weight polymers, canmore » bestow rubbery properties. The authors also report studies of the solution and glass properties.« less
