Focus Issue on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids III

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids 23 (MSIL-23) symposium at the 242nd Meeting of The Electrochemical Society. This is the premier symposium on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids, and has consistently run a full five days since its inception.

The use of molten salts and ionic liquids has a long tradition in electrochemical processes such as electrodeposition, energy storage and conversion, etc. As the third in a series, this focus issue covers the following molten salts and ionic liquids topics:

  • Power and energy applications
  • Rare earth and nuclear chemistry
  • Electrodeposition
  • Reactions
  • Separations
  • Solute and solvent properties
  • Biomass applications
  • Materials
  • New ionic liquids and molten salt mixtures
  • Deep eutectic solvents

Accepting Submissions: December 22, 2022 | Submission Deadline: March 22, 2023


Read papers from the completed Focus Issue on Progress in Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids, Vol. 164, No. 8, 2017 and Focus Issue on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids II – Journal of The Electrochemical Society – IOPscience, Vol. 168, 2021.
