The Effect of Water upon Deep Eutectic Solvent Nanostructure: An Unusual Transition from Ionic Mixture to Aqueous Solution

The Effect of Water upon Deep Eutectic Solvent Nanostructure: An Unusual Transition from Ionic Mixture to Aqueous Solution
Oliver S. Hammond, Karen J. Edler, Daniel T. Bowron
Is hydration the solution to the viscosity of deep eutectic solvents (DESs)? In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201702486), K. J. Edler and co-workers determine the nanostructure of DES/water mixtures over a wide hydration range by neutron diffraction and atomistic modeling. The mixture retains the characteristics of the DES structure up to remarkably high water levels and is then converted into a state best described as a simple aqueous solution of the DES molecular components.
