Ionic liquids to enhance processing efficiency

Apr '08
Ionic liquids are a unique type of product with unparalleled characteristic properties that cannot be achieved with any other material. The entire bandwidth of industrial applications for which ionic liquids from BASF can be used is now summarized in the brochure titled “Ionic Liquids – Solutions for Your Success”.

On 20 pages, the English-only publication describes briefly and vividly potential industrial uses for ionic liquids. Customer-specific services and an overview of the possibilities to licence BASF's ionic liquid processes round off the brochure.

Broad range of industrial uses:
Ionic liquids offer advantages in many industrial applications. Used as a novel type of reaction medium, they provide the chemical industry even with more efficient processes giving higher yields. For example, acids can be removed fast and simply from reaction solutions by means of a process developed and used by BASF: the company markets this process under the Basil brand.

Ionic liquids are also creating new options for the field of plant and equipment manufacturing. The reason is that they are the first materials ever to combine the properties of solids and liquids. They can be used to develop, for example, high-performance hydraulic liquids and lubricants that are non-flammable. The use of these innovative products requires less energy input than conventional materials.

Through ionic liquids, BASF also opens up new potential cellulose applications for its customers. The lack of suitable solvents for this important renewable resource has so far set narrow limits for its use as a material. Now, however, the ionic liquids from BASF allow cellulose to be spun into textile fibers in an environmentally much more acceptable manner. The use of ionic liquids is also opening the road to new options for processing cellulose into polymer materials.
