Interfaces and surfaces are the regions where important events happen: catalysis, molecular recognition, charge transfer, polymerization, and many other critical processes take place at the boundary between one medium and another. In this article we discuss the interface (liquid/air) properties of ionic liquids (ILs) containing dissolved metal ions with the aim to show the possibility to use metal salts to transform ILs and their surfaces into engineered liquid supports to apply in material sciences, separation procedures or to use as optical devices.
