HOT article from FD154: Ionic Liquids
Wishart and coworkers describe their studies of the effect of radiolysis in ionic liquids. They found slight differences in the behaviour of duroquinone in ILs compared to in conventional solvents and suggest that their insights may have potential applications in controlling photodegradation of solar cells and batteries as well as in dealing with spent nuclear fuel.
