Ionic liquid-induced aggregate formation and their applications

Ionic liquid-induced aggregate formation and their applications In the last two decades, researchers have extensively studied highly stable and ordered supramolecular assembly formation using oppositely charged surfactants. Thereafter, surface-active ionic liquids (SAILs), a special class of room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs), replace the surfactants to form various supramolecular aggregates. Therefore, in the last decade, the building blocks of the supramolecular aggregates (micelle, mixed micelle, and vesicular assemblies) have changed from oppositely charged surfactant/surfactant pair to surfactant/SAIL and SAIL/SAIL pair. It is also found that various biomolecules can also interact with SAILs to construct biologically important supramolecular assemblies. The very latest addition to this combination of ion pairs is the dye molecules having a long hydrophobic chain part along with a hydrophilic ionic head group. Thus, dye/surfactant or dye/SAIL pair also produces different assemblies through electrostatic, hydrophobic, and π-π stacking interactions. Vesicles are one of the important self-assemblies which mimic cellular membranes, and thus have biological application as a drug carrier.

Abstract

In the last two decades, researchers have extensively studied highly stable and ordered supramolecular assembly formation using oppositely charged surfactants. Thereafter, surface-active ionic liquids (SAILs), a special class of room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs), replace the surfactants to form various supramolecular aggregates. Therefore, in the last decade, the building blocks of the supramolecular aggregates (micelle, mixed micelle, and vesicular assemblies) have changed from oppositely charged surfactant/surfactant pair to surfactant/SAIL and SAIL/SAIL pair. It is also found that various biomolecules can also interact with SAILs to construct biologically important supramolecular assemblies. The very latest addition to this combination of ion pairs is the dye molecules having a long hydrophobic chain part along with a hydrophilic ionic head group. Thus, dye/surfactant or dye/SAIL pair also produces different assemblies through electrostatic, hydrophobic, and π-π stacking interactions. Vesicles are one of the important self-assemblies which mimic cellular membranes, and thus have biological application as a drug carrier. Moreover, vesicles can act as a suitable microreactor for nanoparticle synthesis.
