Simulation of Confined Ionic Structures
Understanding the properties of ionic liquids (ILs) confined in constrained geometry is of importance for industrial applications such as batteries. Spatial restriction makes the physical and chemical properties of the ‘‘confined systems’’ much different from those of the bulk. The confinement affects the properties of the system as well as shift in glass transition, capillary condensation, melting and freezing points. My research interest focuses on how the confining matrix modify the dynamics, thermodynamics and structure of the confined ILs compared with their bulk.
