    Versatile solvents offer hope for greener chemistry

    Recycling of electronic scrap, lubricants for electric vehicles and perhaps eventually more energy-efficient light sources. Ionic liquids are versatile solvents with a number of promising applications. For Professor Anja Mudring and other chemists, ionic liquids present an opportunity to contribute to a more sustainable society.
