Switchable (pH-driven) aqueous biphasic systems formed by ionic liquids as integrated production–separation platforms

Author affiliations

Abstract

The ability to induce reversible transitions between homogeneous solutions and biphasic systems is of paramount relevance in separation processes. In this context, pH-triggered aqueous biphasic systems composed of ionic liquids and salts are here disclosed as switchable mono/biphasic systems, and their potential application is further demonstrated through an integrated approach comprising both the production and separation of hydroxymethylfurfural from fructose.
