Dissolution of Cellose with Ionic Liquids
We report here initial results that demonstrate that cellulose can be dissolved without activation or pretreatment in, and regenerated from, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride and other hydrophilicExpand
Complete dissolution and partial delignification of wood in the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate
Both softwood (southern yellow pine) and hardwood (red oak) can be completely dissolved in the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([C2mim]OAc) after mild grinding. Complete dissolutionExpand
Characterization and comparison of hydrophilic and hydrophobic room temperature ionic liquids incorporating the imidazolium cation
A series of hydrophilic and hydrophobic 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) have been prepared and characterized to determine how water content, density, viscosity,Expand
Ionic liquids.
Ionic liquids are salts of organic cations with melting points generally below 100 °C and are being widely investigated as replacements for volatile organic solvents in industrial and laboratoryExpand
Room temperature ionic liquids as novel media for ‘clean’ liquid–liquid extraction
The partitioning of simple, substituted-benzene derivatives between water and the room temperature ionic liquid, butylmethylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, is based on the solutes’ charged state orExpand
Can ionic liquids dissolve wood? Processing and analysis of lignocellulosic materials with 1-n-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride
The bulk of the cellulose currently employed by industry is isolated from wood through Kraft pulping, a process which traditionally involves a barrage of environmentally detrimental chemicals and isExpand
Controlling the aqueous miscibility of ionic liquids: aqueous biphasic systems of water-miscible ionic liquids and water-structuring salts for recycle, metathesis, and separations.
Hydrophilic ionic liquids can be salted-out and concentrated from aqueous solution upon addition of kosmotropic salts forming aqueous biphasic systems as illustrated by the phase behavior of mixturesExpand
The third evolution of ionic liquids: active pharmaceutical ingredients
A modular, ionic liquid (IL)-based strategy allows compartmentalized molecular level design of a wide range of new materials with tunable biological, as well as the well known physical and chemical,Expand
Ionic Liquids--Solvents of the Future?
Ionic liquids are composed entirely of ions. Because of the wide range of possible binary and ternary ionic liquids, they offer a potentially wide range of solvent properties. In their Perspective, Expand
Ionic liquids : industrial applications for green chemistry
The first book devoted to room-temperature ionic liquids, and it is a must for chemists interested in environmental protection, synthesis, catalysis, or the modern chemical industry.
