Supplementary Material

The Supplementary Text describes the materials and methods used in this study, provides additional results, and represents some of the statistical methods used to analyze the data. Supplementary Figure S1 shows the response surface plots of ovalbumin precipitation for six cation-anion pairs. Supplementary Figure S2 shows a sampling of the diagnostic battery used to evaluate the GUS enzyme response surface model, and Supplementary Figure S3 displays a sampling of the model influence plots used to identify possible suspect treatment points.

Supplementary Table S1 shows some representative data from the 9-ion mixture experiment, and Supplementary Table S2 shows the ANOVA results for ovalbumin precipitation in the same experiment. Supplementary Table S3 displays the 2-ion mixture amount data for all six cation-anion pairs used in this study. Supplementary Table S4 shows the GUS enzyme fluorescence data, and Supplementary Table S5 displays the ANOVA results for this experiment.
