Practical implementations of environmentally benign (green) solvents in separation processes are critical in preventing pollution. Supercritical CO2 is an important commercial and industrial solvent exhibiting low toxicity and little environmental impact. Similarly ionic liquids have virtually no vapor pressure and can also be classified as green solvents. A wide range of IL separation applications are being studied and have gained great attention, in the areas of extraction, absorption, and adsorption with immobilized IL. The key objective of this session is to encourage papers applying supercritical fluids and/or ionic liquids in separation processes.
