Yong's paper is published in PCCP

Dr. Yong Zhang published a paper entitled "The Effect of C2 Substitution on Melting Points and Liquid Phase Dynamics of Imidazolium-Based Ionic Liquids: Insights from Molecular Dynamics Simulations”, inPhysical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 2012, 14(35), 12157-12164. In this paper, he shows that entropic effects are a major reason why adding a methyl group to the C2 position of an imidazolium ring increases melting points and viscosities. Congratulations, Yong.
