Critical overviews from the front line of ionic liquids research Ionic Liquids Completely UnCOILed: Critical Expert Overviews concludes the discussion of new processes and developments in ionic liquid technology introduced in the previously published volumes, Ionic Liquids UnCOILed and Ionic Liquids Further UnCOILed. The goal of this volume is to provide expert overviews that range from applied to theoretical, synthetic to structural, and analytical to toxicological. The value of book lies in the authors expertise, and their willingness to share it with the reader. Written by an international group of chemists, the book presents eleven overviews of specific areas of ionic liquid chemistry including: * What is an Ionic Liquid? * Molecular modelling * Crystallography * Chemical engineering of ionic liquid processes * Toxicology and Biodegradation * Organic reaction mechanisms Edited by Professor Ken Seddon and Dr Natalia Plechkova, world leaders in the field of ionic liquids, this book is a must read for R&D chemists, educators, and students, and for commercial developers of environmentally sustainable processes.
It offers insight and appreciation for the direction in which the field is going, while also highlighting the best published works available, making it equally valuable to new and experienced chemists alike.
