Moreover the values of the anodic and

Ionic liquids are surfactant-like BGB324 with considerable surface activity. When IL was present in the Laponite dispersion it reduced the interfacial tension causing the new state plane to be unstable and forcing it to separate along a tie-line to yield two distinct phases which are in equilibrium. Interestingly, without fail the tie-line was formed in the middle of the liquid column regardless of the IL concentration and interface kind.
