Data collection method:

Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) measurements were performed on SANS2d and Larmor instruments at the STFC ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Source, UK. Samples of different concentrations of counterion-exchanged dodecylsulfates (lithium, caesium, magnesium, ethylmethylimidazolium, butylmethylimidazolium, cholinium) in 1:2 choline chloride:urea or choline chloride:glycerol were measured in different isotopic substitutions at 50 ˚C.

Data processing and preparation activities:

SANS data were reduced using the open source software MantidPlot, following the standard procedures of the beamline. Corrections were made for sample transmission, instrument geometry, incident flux and scattering from an empty cell.

Technical details and requirements:

Output data consists of txt files in the standard format 1D I(q) vs. q (, that can be used in any software available to fit SANS data.

Additional information:

A PDF file can be found in the folder with a brief description of the datasets.
