Pulse radiolysis and laser flash photolysis are complementary tools for studying fast reactions in ionic liquids. Both techniques have been used to study solvation processes in quaternary ammonium ionic liquids, which extend into the nanosecond regime and influence the reactivity and energetics of radiolytically-generated excess electrons. The preparation and properties of ionic liquid families designed to further these studies is reported.
