International Conference on Ionic Liquids in Separation and Purification Technology (ILSEPT)

International Conference on Ionic Liquids in Separation and Purification Technology (ILSEPT)

5–8 February 2023  | Scottsdale, Arizona, USA

This event is organised by Elsevier.

ILSEPT 2023

This meeting will build on the momentum from the previous ILSEPT meetings held in 2011, 2014, 2017, and 2019.

The conference aims to provide a forum for researchers in academia, national laboratories, and industry to share and discuss their latest results on the use of ionic liquids in separation applications.

Ionic liquids are an exciting class of materials that possess unique properties such as negligible vapor pressure, tunable solvating power, wide liquidus range, and high thermal stability. Due to these unique properties, they have found a wide range of applications in fields as diverse as petrochemicals, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, hydrometallurgy, environmental remediation, and nuclear sciences. Ionic liquids provide novel intensified separation and purification technologies that enable major contributions towards establishing the sustainable processes required for the future process industry. Commercial examples include solvating power for extractive separations, ability to separate azeotropic mixtures, and their ability to dissolve a wide range of natural materials such as cellulose, carbohydrates, and lignin.

The scientific program will offer plenary lectures, submitted oral presentations, and poster sessions.

Testimonials

After every conference, Elsevier sends out a questionnaire to the attendees. Below are some comments made by delegates of the previous conferences.

“Highly relevant focussed topics and delegates” “Quality of the content” “Good speakers and presentations, ideal to network” “The conference has a clear focus on ionic liquids” “Good mixture of academical and industrial contributions” “Good organisation, relevant scientific topics” “Great relevancy for who works in this field.” “IL is a very specific subject all of the attendees were interested in the most part of the presentations, and it has been very well organized.” “The conference addressed issues very interesting; it was well organized and had important speakers in this area of research.” “There were very important people in the field of ionic liquids.” “A broad variety of applications for ILs was discussed and presented.” “All the people who work in the field of ionic liquids applied in separation processes are there.” “The topics have selected carefully, the conference was important because it achieved to gather people who study a specific topic in different applications and with points of view.” “Unique event addressing separation processes as related to ionic liquids.” “I liked the way the ILSEPT 2011 was organized, in a very professional way."
