Ionic Liquids in Medicinal Chemistry

Call for Papers

Ionic liquids have progressed from alternative (green) solvents to a new a whole world of possibilities to science and technology.

There are many kinds of ionic liquids, and now they are entering the medicinal chemistry field. Ionic liquids are still unfamiliar in the medicinal chemistry and in pharmaceutical industry, but they could help this field in several ways.

The special issue aims to focus attention on promising or cutting-edge areas of ionic liquids in medicinal chemistry. This will include basic science, translational research, ionic liquids synthesis, ionic liquids as solvents, ionic liquids as drug carriers, biological and toxicity properties of ionic liquids, novel active pharmaceutical ingredients based on ionic liquids, and progress in pharmaceutical ingredients based on ionic liquids.

We invite authors who are leading experts in the field to contribute with original research papers with high quality as well as review review articles to promote, integrate, and disseminate novel developments in areas of special interest within particular fields of ionic liquids in medicinal chemistry.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Ionic liquids in pharmaceutical applications
  • Ionic liquids as solvents
  • Ionic liquids synthesis
  • Ionic liquids as drug delivers
  • Biological activity of ionic liquids
  • Toxicity of ionic liquids
