Room-temperature ionic liquids (ILs) are a relatively recent class of liquids composed purely of ions with many potentialities for applications such as synthesis, (bio) catalysis, separation processes, electrochemistry as well as in material sciences and for the development of new electrical and electrochemical devices.(1) ILs are normally composed of an organic cation and a monoatomic or polyatomic anion. They are characterized by very low vapor pressure, high thermal and electrochemical stability, good electrical and ionic conductivity. The practically infinite possibilities to modify the anion and the cation, also introducing specific function groups on both ions, make them widely tuneable. In this article, we examine the properties and the possible applications of metal containing ionic liquids with a special attention to their surface properties.
