Hierarchically Mesostructured Polyisobutylene-Based Ionic Liquids.

Appiah, C., et al. Macromolecular Rapid Communications2016,37 (14), 1175-1180, DOI:

The formation and design of a hierarchically nanostructured poly(isobutylene)-based ionic liquid (PIB-ILs) is reported, displaying assembly into classical multiplets and an additional ordering of the aromatic counteranions. The morphology of PIB-ILs as well as its temperature-dependent behavior displays two different transition temperatures: one originating from ordering of micelles within a cylinder, and the second from cylinder–cylinder arrangement.
