Aqueous biphasic systems: a boost brought about by using ionic liquids.
A critical review provides a judicious assessment of the available literature on ionic-liquid-based Aqueous Biphasic Systems and addresses two of the main applications of ionic liquid-based ABS: extraction of biomolecules and other added-value compounds, and their use as alternative approaches for removing and recovering ionic liquids from aqueous media.
Group Contribution Methods for the Prediction of Thermophysical and Transport Properties of Ionic Liquids
Thermophysical and transport properties of ionic liquids are required for the design of processes and products. Yet the experimental data available are scarce and often contradictory. Based on
High-performance extraction of alkaloids using aqueous two-phase systems with ionic liquids
Ionic-liquid-based aqueous two-phase systems are great candidates for the replacement of volatile organic compounds in typical liquid–liquid extractions. This work shows clear evidence for the
Densities and Viscosities of Fatty Acid Methyl and Ethyl Esters
To develop reliable models for the densities and viscosities of biodiesel fuel, reliable data for the pure fatty acid esters are required. Densities and viscosities were measured for seven ethyl
Thermophysical Characterization of Ionic Liquids Able To Dissolve Biomass
Among new potential solvents for lignocellulosic materials, ionic liquids (ILs) are attracting considerable attention. Hence, the knowledge of the thermophysical properties of such fluids is
Biodiesel Density: Experimental Measurements and Prediction Models
Density is an important biodiesel parameter, with impact on fuel quality. Predicting density is of high relevance for a correct formulation of an adequate blend of raw materials that optimize the
Ionic-Liquid-Mediated Extraction and Separation Processes for Bioactive Compounds: Past, Present, and Future Trends
The key accomplishments and future challenges to the field are discussed, with particular emphasis on the major lacunas found within the IL community dedicated to separation processes and by suggesting some steps to overcome the current limitations.
Insights into the Nature of Eutectic and Deep Eutectic Mixtures
A stricter definition of a deep eutectic solvent (DES) is urgent, so that it may become a sound basis for further developments in this field. This communication aims at contributing to deepening the
