Energetic ionic liquids (EILs) are a subset of the rapidly growing field of ionic liquid research. These liquid and stable high-energy materials (HEMs) have many benefits, ranging from ease of manufacture and transportation to enhanced safety, as well as many new applications. This review focuses on the developments in this field from 2005 to 2012, with emphasis on propulsion applications of these new materials. Both bipropellant systems (hypergolic EILs) and monopropellant systems (oxygen balanced EILs) are discussed.

Sequence-dependent self-assembly of supramolecular nanofibers in periodic dynamic block copolymers

Jason K. Phong, Christopher B. Cooper, Lukas Michalek, Yangju Lin, Yuya Nishio, Yuran Shi, Huaxin Gong, Julian A. Vigil, Jan Ilavsky, Ivan Kuzmenko, Zhenan Bao

Summary: Dynamic block copolymers (DBCPs) combine the phase separation of traditional block copolymers with the supramolecular self-assembly of periodic dynamic polymers, resulting in the spontaneous self-assembly of high aspect ratio nanofibers with well-ordered PEG and PDMS domains. DBCPs with a periodic block sequence exhibit superior properties compared to those with a random sequence, including delayed onset of terminal flow and higher ionic conductivity values.
