Recent visits to the Ionic Liquids Group

Our team has just set a new record for the generation of fuels from sunlight. Published in Energy and Environmental Science, we have designed a solar fuel generating device that has established a new record in energy efficiency for the production of solar fuels. To find out more, read the press release here which includes a link to the full paper.


Professor Tom Welton from Imperial College, London, presented his talk on "Mixtures of Ionic Liquids" and generously gave his time and advice to our PhD students.

Professor Ohno, Professor Chiba and colleagues from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology came to Monash University to discuss future collaborations and exchange programs. It was a fruitful day and a pleasure to host the team from TUAT.

It was a great pleasure to have Dr Byrne visit our labs after Dr Vonsanga spent a few days with collaborating with Ciaran McDonnell-Worth in our labs.
