Ionic Liquids as Polymer Additives


This chapter discusses the state of the art in the use of ionic liquids as polymer additives. Examples include ionic liquids as functional additives into polymer electrolytes or as lubricants, plasticizers, and building blocks in a polymer matrix or as surfactants of layered silicates in nanocomposites. The discussion will include the influence of the cation/anion combination of the ionic liquids on the physical properties of the resulting materials.
