Summary : Ionic liquids can be immiscible with water and oil and can form the two (and even three) phase system. The soft liquid/liquid interfaces of ionic liquids can be utilized as a platform for (electro)chemical reactions. In this talk, I will introduce the structure of the electrochemical liquid/liquid interfaces of ionic liquids by using x-ray reflectometry and molecular dynamics simulation and also introduce our recent efforts to electrochemically utilize the soft interface for reductive deposition of metal nanostructures.
