I am delighted to thank MAPEX for the financial support during my research stay at Bremen University from October 2019 to March 2020 and for being hosted by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Kiefer at the Production Engineering Department. The aim of my visit was to intensify activities related to the use of vibrational spectroscopy in the study of Room-Temperature Ionic Liquids (RTILs). In this sense, special attention has been paid to the acquisition of polarized Raman spectra and their relationship with transport properties of ILs in energy storage devices.
It is also worth stressing that joint research projects are already in course, where the exchange of students and researchers between Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and Bremen University will be particularly important to strengthen the established partnership.
