Research Report Highlight

TxACE researchers at UT/Dallas report on the effects of humidity and temperature on the room temperature ionic liquid CO2 sensors, specifically, a fluorinated anionic system.


RTILs have a high response to CO2 in presence of varying ambient conditions of temperature and humidity. Understanding the effects of humidity and temperature changes have on the behavior of the RTILs under test is necessary for exploring the effects of fluorinated and unfluorinated anions have on consistently detecting the differences between different CO2 concentrations. The results demonstrated that there are benefits of using fluorinated anionic systems for CO2 environmental sensing.
