Chapter 5: Ionic Liquids for Analysis of Heavy Metals in Waters
Published:17 Nov 2023
Ionic liquids (ILs) are stable salts with lower melting points. During the last decade, ILs have laid wide scope from reaction media to crystal engineering to sustainable pollutants’ separation. The stimulating nature of ILs has made them more popular among researchers, environmentalists, and technologists. In particular, IL-based materials have unique properties to overcome the essential issues of extracting metals from environmental samples, including natural waters to separation and pre-concentration.
