Force microscopy of layering and friction in an ionic liquid
Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter
The mechanical properties of the ionic liquid 1-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium tris(pentafluoroethyl) trifluorophosphate ([Py 1,4 ][FAP]) in confinement between a SiO x and a Au(111) surface are investigated by means of atomic force microscopy (AFM) under electrochemical control. Up to twelve layers of ion pairs can be detected through force measurements while approaching the tip of the AFM to the surface. The particular shape of the force vs. distance curve is explained by a model for thedoi:10.1088/0953-8984/26/28/284110 pmid:24919549 fatcat:5mr3w3qbjfe6dbzq6mi4jqh5ga
