Ionic Liquids UnCOILed: Critical Expert Overviews



Ionic Liquids UnCOILed: Critical Expert Overviews

Kenneth R. Seddon (Editor), Natalia V. Plechkova (Editor)

ISBN: 978-1-118-43500-7 October 2012 438 Pages



Ionic Liquids UnCOILed presents decisively important reviews on new processes and recent developments in ionic liquid technology with an emphasis on commercial applications in which ionic liquids are replacing, or may replace, processes currently using conventional solvents. Ranging from applied to theoretical, synthetic to analytical, and biotechnological to electrochemical, the book features eleven chapters written by an international group of key academic and industrial chemists, exercising the judicious evaluation which they are uniquely qualified to do. This book is a must for R&D chemists in industrial, governmental and academic laboratories, and for commercial developers of environmentally-friendly, sustainable processes.
