Metal Extraction using ionic liquid [P8888][Oleate], Evidence of Hofmeister effect

Metal Extraction using ionic liquid [P8888][Oleate], Evidence of Hofmeister effect

(location: Wetsus, Leeuwarden) Background: The water purification companies, chemical and mining industries produce numerous aqueous streams polluted with valuable (heavy) metal salts. Economically and technically, it is challenging to remove these impurities from the water before reuse or discharge. Furthermore, it is challenging to selectively separate the different metal salts from each other in order to recover them from the water at a high value. The idea in this proposal is to understand the affinity of metal ions to transfer…

Nowadays, bulk chemicals, such as ethylene glycol (EG), are mostly derived from fossil fuel sources. In 2014, the production of EG reached 25 million tons. Ethylene glycol finds its use in a wide variety of applications; but most importantly, it is one of the components in PET-bottles and used as antifreeze[1]. With the aim of investigating novel pathways of EG production from renewable resources, it was recently shown that ethylene glycol could be produced from micro crystalline cellulose via a…
