Special Issue "Ionic Liquid for Separations"
A special issue of Separations (ISSN 2297-8739).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2018)
The application of ionic liquids (ILs) has blossomed in the last few decades due to their unique properties, including immeasurably low vapor pressure, high thermal stability and excellent solvation ability for a wide range of compounds. Consequently, ILs are considered attractive replacements for volatile organic solvents in multiple applications, including separation and purification, catalysis or extraction processes, among others. In addition, their physical and chemical properties can be fine-tuned by an adequate selection of the cation and anion constituents, for that reason ILs has been described as design solvents (i.e., “task-specific” ILs).
In line with the increasing attention that this family of compounds has attracted recently, the present Special Issue reports on the most important and latest fundamental and technological advances in separation processes using ILs.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
