"Structure of Room-Temperature Ionic-Liquids as it Relates to Anomalous Transport"

Presented by Claudio J. Margulis, University of Iowa

Monday, April 25, 2016, 10:00 am — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

Ionic Liquids are defined by phenomena on different length scales. During this talk I will describe our most recent efforts to correlate their heterogeneous nanoscale structure as derived from X-ray scattering experiments with anomalous solute dynamics.
Our work has contributed to the development of guidelines to interpret scattering results, however the connection, if any, between structure and dynamics is still unclear. Inroads to this extent will be discussed in the context of translational and rotational diffusion of smaller solutes.
