Better than water: A method for the electrodeposition of nanocrystalline metals and alloys from ionic liquids has been developed (see schematic representation). This method enables the synthesis of aluminum nanocrystals with average grain sizes of about 10 nm, Al-Mn alloys, as well as Fe and Pd nanocrystals.
