Federal Room B (Capital Hilton)
Solvents and Solvent Systems (sss)
Alternative Solvents
This session will cover biobased solvents, benign solvents, alternative solvents such as ionic liquids and fluorous media, supercritical fluids, “smart solvents” that sense certain conditions, such as heat, and are designed to respond accordingly, “obedient solvents” that change basic physical and chemical properties as a response to an imparted stimulus, new applications for water-based solvent systems, and "greener" organic solvents, which can be derived from renewable feedstocks or can be designed at the molecular level to have reduced environmental impact.
