Abstract

This is the third and final book of three volumes of critical overviews of the key areas of ionic liquid chemistry. The first volume was entitled Ionic Liquids UnCOILed; the second was Ionic Liquids Further UnCOILed. The history and rationale behind this trilogy were explained in the preface to Volume 1 and so will not be repeated here. But we did instruct the authors as follows: 'It is important to emphasise that these are meant to be critical reviews. We are not looking for comprehensive coverage, but insight, appreciation and prospect. We want the type of review which can be read to give a sense of importance and scope of the area, highlighting this by the best published work and looking for the direction in which the field is moving. We would also like the problems with the area highlighting, e.g. poor experimental technique, poor selection of liquids, and variability of data'. Looking back over all three books, we are amazed at the quality of reviews produced and their 'timeless' nature - they are fresh and inciteful.
