Ionic Liquids Toxicity—Benefits and Threats
The potential risks to the environment linked to the application of ILs are presented and the need for a new biodegradable, less toxic “greener” ILs is presented.
Ionic Liquids—A Review of Their Toxicity to Living Organisms
The intent of this review was to compile the information published in this area since 2015 to allow the reader to better understand how, for example, bacteria, plants, fish, etc., react to the presence of this family of liquids.
Environmental Concerns Regarding Ionic Liquids in Biotechnological Applications.
This chapter introduces the antimicrobial activities of ionic liquids in bioprocesses and, in greater detail, discusses their environmental impacts, including the toxicity, biodegradability, bioaccumulation, and mobility of Ionic liquids.
A gadolinium-based magnetic ionic liquid for dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction
The prepared MIL showed low water miscibility, reasonable viscosity, markedly high magnetic susceptibility, adequate chemical stability, low UV background, and compatibility with reversed-phase HPLC solvents, which resulted in a more efficient extraction than the corresponding iron or manganese analogues.


Environmental risks of magnetic ionic liquids: Ecotoxicity (EC50, Vibrio fischeri)
The interest in ionic liquids has increased widely in the last years in order to achieve better environmental management of processes and products. They are compounds composed entirely of ions and
Design of ionic liquids: an ecotoxicity (Vibrio fischeri) discrimination approach
Ionic liquids have attracted a lot of attention as potential replacements for conventional volatile organic solvents, although they may pose environmental risks to aquatic ecosystems that have to be
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
Pyrrolidinium-based Ionic Liquids: Aquatic Ecotoxicity, Biodegradability, and Algal Subinhibitory Stimulation
The examined ionic liquids were not aerobically biodegradable, but they demonstrated low toxicity toward algae and crustaceans, according to the standard bioassay end points.
Effects of different head groups and functionalised side chains on the aquatic toxicity of ionic liquids
In this study, the influence of different head groups, functionalised side chains and anions of ionic liquids on the marine bacteria Vibrio fischeri, the limnic green algae Scenedesmus vacuolatus and
Designing ionic liquids: the chemical structure role in the toxicity
The results here reported suggest the possibility of designing ILs with an enhanced hydrophobic character and lower toxicity, by elimination of their aromatic nature.
Environmental Application, Fate, Effects, and Concerns of Ionic Liquids: A Review.
Environmental relevant issues of ILs, including their environmental application, environmental behavior and toxicity are addressed and important routes for designing nontoxic ILs and the techniques that might be adopted for the removal are presented.
