Computational and Experimental Studies of Imidazolium-Based Ionic Liquids in Organic Solutions for MET Sensor Devices

Mentor:
Research Theme: Data
FURI: Spring 2020

This research focuses on further understanding on how molecular dynamic interactions affect the chemical properties of ionic liquid solutions for the optimization of a molecular electronic transducer-based seismometer for low-temperature space applications. This project will utilize ionic liquids, such as 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide, [BMIM][I], to observe their chemical properties when mixed with organic solvents such as butyronitrile (BCN) or propylene carbonate (PC) from a combined computational and experimental approach.

Computational and Experimental Studies of Imidazolium-Based Ionic Liquids in Organic Solutions for MET Sensor Devices

Mentor:
Research Theme: Data
FURI: Fall 2019

The goal for this research is to gain further understanding of how molecular dynamic interactions affect the chemical properties of ionic liquid solutions for the optimization of molecular electronic transducer-based devices such as seismometers. This project will utilize ionic liquids of varying chain length, such as 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide, [BMIM][I], to observe their chemical properties when mixed with organic solvents such as gamma butyrolactone (GBL) or propylene carbonate (PC). By using computational and experimental techniques the research team will gain more understanding of ionic liquid electrolyte systems that are designed for space applications.
