    Abstract

    The wide range of interesting properties that metal oxides exhibit has always driven creative research in this area. Here we analyse the interaction between an ionic liquid, 1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate (emim)OAc, and biopolymers such as cellulose, chitosan, starch and dextran and demonstrate how they are intimately involved in the control of shape, size and crystallinity of strontium niobate.
