Ionic Liquids Workshop
Background, State-of-the-Art, and Academic/Industrial Applications
The University of Alabama,
“A workshop to provide R&D personnel with state-of-the-art information and a working knowledge of the chemistry, properties, and applications of ionic liquids, thus enabling decision making and utilization of these novel solvents”
‘Ionic Liquids’ are now defined as salts that melt near or below 100 °C; these salts are not ‘defined’ as ‘green’. Ionic liquids define a class of fluids rather than a small group of individual examples. The vastly increased volume of publications, in the open and patent literature, indicates that significant efforts are being made in utilizing ionic liquids in industrial applications.
Six world-renowned experts in ionic liquid chemistries and applications, plus several ionic liquid suppliers, will provide an intensive 'what-you-need-to-know' workshop which will include literature surveys, physical/solvent properties, engineering aspects, IL availability and synthesis, academic and industrial applications, product demonstrations, and hands-on ionic liquid experience.
