Discrete Electrolytes Research

Liquid ionics beyond Poisson-Boltzmann

We are interested in novel ionic effects at the nanoscale in fluidic systems, including controlled molecular ordering of discrete electrolytes (ionic liquids) for tunable lubrication and optimised energy and power densities, and ion-partitioning at nanoscale gas/liquid interfaces (nanobubbles) for chemical-free industrial cleaning.
