Screening ionic liquids for use in biotransformations with whole microbial cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

A wide range of ionic liquids, both water miscible and water immiscible, containing a diverse set of cations and anions, were screened for toxicity towards Escherichia coli K-12, using both Agar Diffusion tests and growth inhibition tests in liquid cultures. The data provide preliminary rules to enable the design of non-toxic ionic liquids for use in biocatalytic processes.
