Molten salts and ionic liquids have been drawing increasing interest because of their suitability for various application in areas such as chemistry, electrochemistry materials science, and more.

This important new work presents twenty-six chapters contributed by a panel of experts in their respective fields, covering the structure, dynamics, chemistry, and interfacial and thermodynamic properties of molten salts and ionic liquids. Readers will gain a solid understanding of the similarities and differences between the two categories of materials in terms of properties, experimental and theoretical methods for investigating these properties, techniques for data collection and analysis, and various applications.

This book is valuable resource for any academic or industrial chemist using, or contemplating using, molten salts or ionic liquids. It is also an excellent reference for chemists in academia, research, and industry, as well as graduate students in related disciplines.
