Ionic-Liquid-Mediated Extraction and Separation Processes for Bioactive Compounds: Past, Present, and Future Trends
TLDR
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.
Designing ionic liquids: the chemical structure role in the toxicity
TLDR
The results here reported suggest the possibility of designing ILs with an enhanced hydrophobic character and lower toxicity, by elimination of their aromatic nature.
Understanding the impact of the central atom on the ionic liquid behavior: phosphonium vs ammonium cations.
TLDR
It is argued that this charge delocalization is responsible for the enhanced polarity observed on the ammonium based ionic liquids explaining the changes in the thermophysical properties observed.
Environmental safety of cholinium-based ionic liquids: assessing structure-ecotoxicity relationships
Ionic liquids (ILs) are innovative solvents that can be tuned for their specific application through the selection, or functionalization, of the cation and the anion. Although the cation has been
