Recognition-based Smart Ionic Liquids

Recognition-based ionic liquids are capable of extracting biomolecules quantitatively from the aqueous phase into the organic ionic liquid phase. By exploiting the chemically tunable nature of the “designer solvents”, a series of bicyclic imidazolium, crowned 1,2,3-triazolium and bicyclic 1,2,3-triazolium ionic liquids were developed for the partitioning of fluorescent protein, myoglobin, cytochrome c, and arginine-, histidine-, and lysine-containing peptides. These chemoselective binding interactions were based on the biomolecular recognition between peptides/proteins and functional ionic liquids. The chemical synthesis and affinity extraction of this one-of-a-kind biosensing platform will be described in this chapter.
