An Introduction to Room Temperature Ionic Liquids (RTILs)

Authors(1) :-Manpreet Kaur

RTILs or ILs (Ionic Liquids) are an important tool to achieve the targets of green chemistry. They have opened new vistas for practical green chemistry. Their role as a replacement of organic solvents has been discussed in this review. Also, many of their unique properties and applications have been studied. ILs are being seen as designer solvents as their properties can be varied by altering the anion or the cation. As the ILs have desirable properties like negligible vapour pressure high thermal stability etc., they are considered more environment friendly than organic solvents. ILs have found applications in several fields like solvent extraction, chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, voltammetry.
