Phase behaviour and crystallisation of ionic liquids and the effect of
carbon dioxide: zone melting for ionic liquid purification and recovery
A three-year EPSRC-funded post-doctoral position is available from 1 October
2004 to work in a team investigating the structural and physical properties of
ionic liquids at or near their melting point to assess a novel method for their
purification, necessary for their recovery/reuse in chemical processing.
Structural changes associated with ionic liquid solidification will be studied
using state-of-the-art X-ray crystallographic and thermochemical facilities in
the Department. You should (be about to) have a chemistry PhD with a strong
emphasis on X-ray crystallography of single crystals. Experience of optical
heating and crystallisation methods and of thermal analysis techniques would
be desirable.
