Abstract: Room temperature molten liquids are proposed to be good alternates for volatile and harmful organic compounds. They are useful in varied areas of applications ranging from synthesis, catalysis to energy storage molten electrolytes have certain unique characteristics such as low vapour pressure, reasonably high ionic conductivity, high thermal stability and wide electrochemical window. These molten liquids can be classified in to two types depending on the nature of the species present in the liquids. One, those liquids consists only of ions (e.g) conventional imidazolium based ionic liquids and other that consists of ions and solvents (e g) acetamide eutectics. Acetamide and its eutectics from room temperature molten solvents that is unique with interesting physicochemical properties. The solvent properties of molten acetamide are similar to water, with high dielectric consist of 60 at 353 k. its acid – base properties are also similar to water, and it can solublise variety of organic and inorganic compounds as well. in the present studies room temperature molten liquids consisting of acetamide as one of the components have been prepared and used for various applications. Room temperature molten electrolytes consisting of magnesium perchlorate/magnesium triflate as one of the constituents have been used for rechargeable magnesium batteries where as those consisting of zinc perchlorate /zinc triflate have been used for zinc based rechargeable batteries. Full utilization of cathode material (y-mno2) is achieved using amide-based molten liquid as electrolyte in rechargeable zinc based batteries. Ammonium nitrate/ lithium nitrate containing electrolytes have been used for electrochemical super capacitors. They have been used as solvent cum stabilizers for metallic nanochains that can be used as substrate in surface enchanced Raman scattering studies.
