Title: SISGR: Physical chemistry of reaction dynamics in ionic liquids

Abstract

This document is the final technical report for the five-institution project titled, “SISGR: Physical chemistry of reaction dynamics in ionic liquids”. The project included the groups of Edward Castner, Jr. at Rutgers, Mark Maroncelli at Penn State, Claudio Margulis at Univ. of Iowa, David Blank at Univ. of Minnesota, and James Wishart at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The project spanned several funding periods between 2009 and 2017, with a no-cost extension at Rutgers continuing until 3/14/2018. The scientific research carried out included an array of experiemental and theoretical investigations into the properties and chemical reactivity of room-temperature ionic liquids (ILs). Such ILs are of broad importance for energy science and technology applications, including their use in advanced batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells; processing of biomass to liquid fuels; and for solubilizing and separating high-level radionuclides from nuclear waste products. Specific examples include the study of the transport and structural properties of the liquids, studies of photo-induced electron-transfer reactions, and characterization of solvated electrons in the ILs.
