In collaboration with Prof. R.D. Rogers, the current Tage Erlander professor in our group and Prof. S.F. Tang, a former postdoc, now professor at Qingdao Agricultural University, China we worked on the
Synthesis of Anhydrous Acetates for the Components of Nuclear Fuel Recycling in Dialkylimidazolium Acetate Ionic Liquids
Inorg. Chem. 2020, 59, 818-828.
Originating from a collaboration with the Tage Erlander Professor Robin D. Rogers:
S. P. Kelley, H. Pei, V. Smetana, A.-V. Mudring, R. D. Rogers:
Structural Consequences of Halogen Bonding in Dialkylimidazolium: A New Design Strategy for Ionic Liquids Illustrated with the I2 Co-Crystal and Acetonitrile Solvate of 1,3-Dimethylimidazolium Iodide,
Cryst. Growth Des., 2020, 20, 498-505.
