Loss of order! The surface enrichment of the alkyl chains of five imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs) at the liquid/vacuum interface is studied as a function of temperature by angle-resolved X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; both the anion and the alkyl chain length at the cation are varied. At room temperature, the alkyl chains are enriched at the outer surface. Upon increasing the temperature, the degree of surface enrichment decreases.
