Electrochemical stability of ionic liquids: general influences and degradation mechanisms

Journal Contribution - Review Article

The stability of ionic liquids is of paramount importance in selecting the appropriate ionic liquid for a well-defined application. This Review provides an overview of stability issues, both chemical and electrochemical, and the underlying degradation mechanisms that are known. The influence of various functionalities on the stability of the ionic liquid, influencing both the cationic as the anionic parts of the ionic liquid, still requires several careful studies.
