Low melting mixtures in organic synthesis – an alternative to ionic liquids?

Author affiliations

Abstract

There is a pressing need to replace hazardous and harmful solvents with “green” or “sustainable” media. Natural compounds have recently been used to produce deep eutectic solvents, sugar melts, or ionic liquids. This review presents physicochemical data of these reaction media and highlights recent advances in their use in organic synthesis and biotransformations.
