Abstract

X-ray scattering data from four pairs of ionic liquids (ILs) are compared. The alkyl-substituted cations show a first sharp diffraction peak between 3 and 4 nm−1 that is not observed for ILs having cations with ether- or hydroxy-substitutions. These observations indicate a significant difference in the intermediate range order for these liquids.
