Thin film structural analysis using variable-period x-ray standing waves (2018)
Journal Article
Gibson, J. S., Syres, K. L., Buckley, M., Lee, T., Thakur, P. K., & Jones, R. G. (2018). Thin film structural analysis using variable-period x-ray standing waves. Physical Review B, 98(16), doi:10.1103/physrevb.98.165402. ISSN 2469-9950

Variable period X-ray standing wave (VPXSW) studies have been carried out using 3 keV X-rays and photoelectron detection. Two model surfaces have been used, a native SiO2 layer (20 Å thick) on bulk silicon, and a purpose built multilayer surface com... Read More

An ultra-high vacuum electrochemical/mass spectrometry study of anodic decomposition of a protic ionic liquid (2018)
Journal Article
Goodwin, S., Gibson, J., Jones, R., & Walsh, D. A. (2018). An ultra-high vacuum electrochemical/mass spectrometry study of anodic decomposition of a protic ionic liquid. Electrochemistry Communications, 90, doi:10.1016/j.elecom.2018.04.013. ISSN 1388-2481

Protic ionic liquids (PILs) are ionic liquids that are formed by proton transfer from Brønsted acids to Brønsted bases, and which are being proposed for use in a wide range of electrochemical devices. In this contribution, we describe electrolysis of... Read More

Electroanalysis of neutral precursors in protic ionic liquids and synthesis of high-ionicity ionic liquids (2017)
Journal Article
Sean, G., Daniel, S., Joshua, G., Jones, R., & Walsh, D. A. (in press). Electroanalysis of neutral precursors in protic ionic liquids and synthesis of high-ionicity ionic liquids. Langmuir, 33(34), doi:10.1021/acs.langmuir.7b02294. ISSN 0743-7463

Protic ionic liquids (PILs) are ionic liquids that are formed by transferring protons from Brønsted acids to Brønsted bases. While they nominally consist entirely of ions, PILs can often behave as though they contain a significant amount of neutral... Read More
