Ionic Liquids: Green Solvents for Chemical Processing

Description

Ionic liquids are organic salts, usually consisting of an organic cation and a polyatomic inorganic anion, which are liquid under 100°C. The most relevant properties of ionic liquids are their very low vapor pressure. Furthermore, their physical and chemical properties can be fine-tuned by the adequate selection of the cation and anion constituents. Ionic liquids have been recognized as environmental benign alternative to volatile organic solvents. Application of ionic liquids in chemical processes has blossomed within the last decade. Indeed, these media have been used in replacement of volatile organic solvents in a wide variety of chemical processes, such as separation and purification, reaction media in biochemical, and chemical catalysis.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to implement ionic liquids in chemical processes. We are particularly interested in articles describing new applications of ionic liquids in chemical and biochemical reactions and separation processes; innovative applications of ionic liquids in fuel and energy production; ionic liquids in environmental engineering and risk potential of these new solvents. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent progress on developing new ionic liquid for use in chemical synthesis and catalysis
  • Advances in separation processes using ionic liquids
  • Ionic liquids in fuel production
  • Latest ionic liquid technologies for fuel cells
  • Ionic liquids in analytical chemistry
  • Ionic liquids as in electrochemical processing
  • Progress in evaluation of risk potential of ionic liquids
