New Frontiers For Ionic Liquids
Ten years ago, research on ionic liquids was a relatively unknown backwater of chemistry. Few chemists were familiar with these low-melting-point salts that have negligible vapor pressure, and barely a handful of books or review articles on chemistry mentioned them.
Since then, the field has grown almost exponentially. Between 1986 and 1996, fewer than 25 papers on ionic liquids were published each year. In 2005, almost 1,500 papers on the topic were published, and 2006 . . .
