As part of the School of Science and Technology Chemistry and Forensic Science Colloquium Dr Peter Nockemann, Queens University Belfast presents: Ionic Liquids for Inorganic and Materials Chemistry – From Fundamentals to Industrial Applications.

Abstract

Ionic liquids are salts with low melting points, usually below 100°C.  These solvents have been found to dissolve a number of organic and inorganic materials – ranging from polymers and cellulose to metal salts and oxides. Ionic liquids are often regarded as 'green solvents' due to their negligible vapour pressure and their potential for long life-cycles and recovery, therefore are often considered as environmentally benign solvents.

These solvents are increasingly attracting the attention of inorganic and materials chemists as well. Starting from the principles governing solubilisation of inorganic salts, applications in the synthesis of polynuclear complexes and nanomaterials, in metal separations and for industrial-scale applications will be shown.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Anthony Fitzpatrick

All welcome.
