Official Information:

We will take up critical issues such as how we can harness ILs to improve our prospects for a future powered by greener energy – not only by enabling the more tractable manipulation of biomaterials, but in helping to reduce the environmental impact of hydrocarbon fuels. We will ask – and attempt to answer – such questions as whether ionic liquids can make analyses more sensitive, polymers more useful, and working in environmental extremes more readily accomplished.
