This paper presents the synthesis, characterization and micro-valve actuation in a micro-fluidic device of novel polymeric materials based on phosphonium ionic liquids (ILs), ionogels. When photo-responsive gels are co-polymerised within different IL matrixes, high versatility in the ionogels actuation can be achieved when incorporated in a micro-fluidic system as micro-valves.
