  • Publication number: 20150119577
    Abstract: A membrane separation process using a highly fluorinated polymer membrane that selectively permeates water of an aqueous ionic liquid solution to provide dry ionic liquid. Preferably the polymer is a polymer that includes polymerized perfluoro-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxole (PDD). The process is also capable of removing small molecular compounds such as organic solvents that can be present in the solution. This membrane separation process is suitable for drying the aqueous ionic liquid byproduct from precipitating solutions of biomass dissolved in ionic liquid, and is thus instrumental to providing usable lignocellulosic products for energy consumption and other industrial uses in an environmentally benign manner.

  • Publication number: 20120157680
    Abstract: PROBLEM: Providing a novel ionic liquid, which is low-cost, environment-friendly, and has low viscosity and melting point. MEANS FOR SOLVING THE PROBLEM: The present invention is the invention of the ionic liquid represented by the general formula [1]: {wherein, R1 to R3 and n pieces of R4 each independently represent hydrogen atom or alkyl group having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, R5 to R7 each independently represent alkyl group, aralkyl group, or aryl group, R8 represents alkyl group, aralkyl group, aryl group, or the one represented by the general formula [2]: (wherein T represents alkylene chain having 1 to 8 carbon atoms, n represents 1 or 2, and R1 to R7 are the same as the above-described), X represents nitrogen atom or phosphorus atom, n represents 1 or 2. When n is 1, R3 and R4 are bound and may form cyclohexene ring together with the adjacent carbon atoms. In addition, when X is nitrogen atom, R5 to R7 or R5 to R6 may form hetero ring with nitrogen atom binding thereto}.
