Abstract

Structural analysis on interfaces between ionic liquids (ILs) and solid substrates is an important study for not only the basic fundamental aspects but also many technological processes. In the present work, we utilized frequency modulation atomic force microscopy (FM-AFM) based on a quartz tuning fork sensor to elucidate the structure of interface between 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate (BMI-PF6) IL and highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) surface. It was observed that this IL form solvation layers at their interface, with ∼0.5-0.57 nm thickness of each layer. We have compared our experimental results with previously reported results from molecular dynamics simulation study, and combination of classical molecular dynamics and density functional theory calculations in order to understand the IL/HOPG interface.
