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.

About Author

Dr. Natalia V. Plechkova attained her BSc and MSc in chemical engineering at the Russian Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology, Moscow, and her PhD in chemistry, under the guidance of Professor Seddon. Since then she has been a research fellow and project manager in the QUILL (Queens University Ionic Liquid Laboratories) Research Centre, focusing on various aspects of ionic liquids, including their synthesis, characterization and applications. Prof. Kenneth R. Seddon is Chair of Inorganic Chemistry at the Queens University of Belfast, and director of the QUILL Research Centre, a world-leading industrial-academic consortium which was awarded the 2006 Queens s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education and has just been involved with implementing a full-scale process for removing mercury from natural gas streams with Petronas Chemicals.
