The various applications proposed over the last two decades for ionic liquids (LIs) and deep euthetic solvents (DES) demand their characterization with thermal, reological and ionic conductivity measurements in function of temperature. Spectroscopic techniques are employed, in particular vibrational spectroscopy (Raman and infrared), for the rationalization of macroscopic properties in terms of molecular structure. However, spectroscopic measurements and basic physico-chemical properties often do not correspond to the same state of the system due to the great dependence of phase transitions on the thermal history experienced by these materials. In this project we intend to use accessories for Raman spectroscopy in which thermal and electrical measurements are made simultaneously with the recording of the spectrum. The target systems will be mainly protic ionic liquids and their euthetic mixtures in which, in addition to the conductivity due to ionic diffusion, there is also the possibility of protonic mobility in a network of hydrogen bonds.
