In recent years ionic liquids have received considerable attention as ideal green solvents for synthesis and extraction applications. Ionic liquids, because of their unique set of properties such as low volatility, high stability, excellent solvation ability, high ionic strength, and tunable structure, are frequently utilized as alternate environmentally friendly solvents to conventional solvents. It is these same properties, however, that present analytical challenges, particularly with liquid chromatography LC or gas chromatography GC analysis of compounds of interest dissolved in ionic liquid media.
