About the book

Over these last decades, ionic liquids were found suitable in the world of industry. Due to their specific properties such as very low volatility, high thermal stability, and their ability to dissolve a wide variety of compounds, this family of solvents appears to meet the rigorous criteria of industrial applications. Among others, ionic liquids appear to be efficient for gas capture, biomass pretreatment, separation problems, electrochemistry; they are also used in electrolytes, as lubricants, as catalysts, or as antistatic agents.

This book welcomes topics related to biomass pretreatment, separation processes, analytical chemistry, energy applications, and biomedicine applications using ionic liquids. A short chapter will be devoted to the physicochemical properties of ionic liquids as well as to the predictive models for the estimation of thermodynamic properties useful in the industry. This book is recommended for researchers to whom ionic liquids are an area of interest.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
