Green (or Greener) Industrial Applications of Ionic Liquids
Sponsored by the
221st American Chemical
Society National Meeting
San Diego, CA
April 1-5, 2001
OVERVIEW OF THE SYMPOSIUM AND TECHNOLOGY REVIEW
The symposium will consist of 10 half-day oral sessions of 6-7 oral presentations each and one poster session of 18 posters. In total, over 80 presentations on the latest in ionic liquid R&D will be presented.
The first session will begin Sunday morning April 1, 2001 and the final session will end Thursday afternoon April 5. The poster session will be presented twice, Sunday evening at the I&EC poster session and Monday evening at SCI-MIX.
A special session to review current and potential applications of ionic liquids will be held on Wednesday evening April 4, 2001 at 7:00 p.m.

SPECIAL SESSION: TECHNOLOGY REVIEW OF IONIC LIQUIDS
The Department of the Army, Army Research Office will sponsor a special session entitled “Technology Review of Current and Potential Ionic Liquids Applications” on Wednesday evening, 7:00-10:00 p.m., April 4, 2001 at the Westin Horton Plaza Hotel.
The objective of this special session is to conduct a technology review of the status and promise of ionic liquids for a wide range of new, improved, or more environmentally-benign chemical technologies in catalysis, synthesis, separations, and electrochemistry. The Technology Review Panel, consists of 10-15 speakers and panelists invited from the participants to provide short overviews of the current state-of-the-art and current technical challenges in specific R&D areas. Speakers are requested to NOT give research presentations.
The panel will conclude with open discussions by participants and an audience invited from the speakers at the symposium, including academic, industrial, and national laboratory participants, as well as program officers from federal agencies currently funding ionic liquid research (NSF, DOE, ONR, NIST, EPA, USDA, OAR). A Technology Status Review document will be prepared and distributed to program officers and participants after the meeting.
The goals of the proposed technology review include the following:
· To provide a critical assessment of current knowledge in the field
· To compare where possible ionic liquids with work using sc-CO2 and aqueous media
· To identify the promise of ionic liquids for the future
· To identify key DoD needs for improved technologies for targeted ionic liquid R&D
Ionic Liquids (IL) are emerging as novel replacements for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) traditionally used as industrial solvents, however, the lack of a coherent research agenda for the field with major industrial input to define the basic science and engineering needs for practical application may be artificially holding back utilization of these green solvents.
The goals of the symposium include the following:
To accomplish these goals, the symposium will bring together a team from wide professional experience including industrial, academic, and government research personnel. The participants will be drawn from several disciplines and interest including chemical engineering, medicinal chemistry, petrochemicals, electrochemistry, separations, synthesis, catalysis, and computational modeling. Their areas of expertise will include green chemistry and engineering, high temperature molten salts, room temperature ionic liquids, industrial technologies, pollution prevention/remediation, and environmental regulation.
