Ionic Liquids UnCOILed
Critical Expert Overviews
Critical overviews from the front line of ionic liquids research
Ionic liquids are valued for their tuneable physical properties, are promising “green” replacement for organic solvents, and are at the focus of burgeoning interest for industrial and academic research. With no measurable vapour pressure—and offering significant advantages in reaction rate, yield, and selectively-these low-melting salts are applicable to, among other things, organic synthesis, catalytic reactions (conventional and biochemical), separations technology, and electrochemistry.
Ionic Liquids UnCOiLed presents decisively important reviews on new processes and recent development in ionic liquid technology with an emphasis on commercial applications in which ionic liquids are replacing, or may replace, processes currently using conventional solvents. Ranging from applied to theoretical, synthetic to analytical, and biotechnological to electrochemical, the book features chapters written by an international group of key academic and industrial chemists, exercising the judicious evaluation which they are uniquely qualified to do.
This book included eleven critical overviews of the following differing aspects of ionic liquids:
- Electrodeposition from ionic Liquids: Interface Processes, Ion Effects, and Macroporous Structures
- Interfaces of Ionic Liquids (two perspectives)
- Ionic Liquids in Separation Science
- Separation Processes with Ionic Liquids
- Theoretical Approaches to Ionic Liquids: From Past History to Future Directions
- Ionic Liquids Derived from Natural Sources
- Ionic Liquids Studied at Ultra-High Vacuum
- Pioneering Biological Processes in the Presence of Ionic Liquids: The Potential of Filamentous Fungi
- Use of Ionic Liquids in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
- Phase behavior of Gases in Ionic Liquids
Ionic Liquids UnCOiLed is a must for R&D chemists in industrial governmental and academic laboratories, and for commercial developers of environmentally-friendly, sustainable processes.
