The People Working with Ionic Liquids
Members: Prof. Ingo Krossing
Prof. Ingo Krossing is trained as inorganic chemist and works since 2005 in the area of Ionic Liquids.
His long term interest in weakly coordinating anions, thermodynamics of salts and quantum
chemical calculations led to contributions in IL Science.
Fields of expertise:
Synthesis of novel ILs
Thermodynamics of ILs
Prediction of IL Properties
Quantum Chemical Modelling of ILs
We are members of the DFG Priority Program SPP 1191 Ionic Liquids (Link auf das Programm)
