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.
