The dissolution behaviour of a series of d- and p-block metal oxides was investigated in deep eutectic solvents, DES, to determine the effect of pH and hydrogen bond donor (HBD) coordination strength on their solubility. The solubility of metal oxides was found to be increased by a higher proton activity in DESs composed of poorly complexing HBDs, due to the ability of H+ to act as an oxygen acceptor. However, the employment of HBDs that have stronger complexing abilities was proven to have a… 
Electrochemical oxidation as alternative for dissolution of metal oxides in deep eutectic solvents
Metal oxide dissolution is central to most metal processing and is generally carried out using mineral acids. An alternative approach has been demonstrated for metal sulfides using electrochemical
Modelling of the Erosive Dissolution of Metal Oxides in a Deep Eutectic Solvent—Choline Chloride/Sulfosalicylic Acid—Assisted by Ultrasonic Cavitation
Here we report on the results concerning the influence of ultrasound on the dissolution process of metal oxides CoO, Ni2O3 and Mn2O3 in choline chloride/sulfosalicylic acid as a deep eutectic
Dissolution of Metal Oxides in a Choline Chloride–Sulphosalicylic Acid Deep Eutectic Solvent
A choline chloride–sulfosalicylic acid deep eutectic solvent (DES) is proposed for dissolving the oxides Co(II), Cu(II), Zn(II), Fe(III), Ni(III) and Mn(III). An experimental study of the influence
Integrated Leaching and Separation of Metals Using Mixtures of Organic Acids and Ionic Liquids
The [P44414]Cl + CH3COOH system was applied to the treatment of real waste, NiMH battery black mass, being shown that it allows an efficient separation of Co(II) from Ni(II), Fe(III) and the lanthanides in a single leaching and separation step.
Engineering a tandem leaching system for the highly selective recycling of valuable metals from spent Li-ion batteries
With the rapid development of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), the selective recovery of lithium and other valuable metals from spent LIBs is in urgent need because of the shortage of Li and valuable
Eutectics: formation, properties, and applications.
The goal of this review is to provide a comprehensive overview of typical eutectics and describe task-specific strategies to address growing demands.


Dissolution of metal oxides in task-specific ionic liquid
Due to their typically low reactivity, the activation of metal oxides, as found in ores, earths and minerals, is in general performed by high temperature reactions, which consume much energy. Owing
EXAFS study into the speciation of metal salts dissolved in ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents.
One of the main findings of this study is that, with respect to metal speciation, there is no fundamental difference between deep eutectic solvents and classic ionic liquids.
Acidic Dissolution of Magnetite: Experimental Study on the Effects of Acid Concentration and Temperature
Magnetite (Fe3O4) is a key economically valuable component in iron ore and is extracted by dissolution processes, but among the Fe (oxyhydr)oxides its solubility behavior is one of the least
Deep eutectic solvents formed between choline chloride and carboxylic acids: versatile alternatives to ionic liquids.
It is shown that the conductivity and viscosity of these liquids is controlled by ion mobility and the availability of voids of suitable dimensions, and this is consistent with the fluidity of other ionic liquids and molten salts.
Brønsted acidity in deep eutectic solvents and ionic liquids.
It was found that the organic acids studied were slightly less dissociated in the DES than in water with pKa values between 0.2 and 0.5 higher, and an electrochemical pH sensor was attempted to develop.
Solubility of Metal Oxides in Deep Eutectic Solvents Based on Choline Chloride
The solubility of 17 commonly available metal oxides in the elemental mass series Ti through Zn have been determined in three ionic liquids based on choline chloride. The hydrogen bond donors used
