Ionic liquids – the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning?

Chris Hamer, one of the world's leading attorneys in the field of ionic liquid technologies, and Matthew Morton have recently produced an article for a peer-reviewed journal (Separation and Purification Technology – an Elsevier publication) on the topic of ionic liquid technologies.

A journal publication was researched and written by Chris and Matthew, which looks at the at developments in ionic liquids in relation to patent claims and other trends in patents relating to ionic liquid-based technologies. The purpose of the article was to analyse some of the trends in patent filings in the field of ionic liquids specifically and to use this information to provide an indication of how the transfer of ionic liquids from academic labs to commercial industries is developing.

The article was peer reviewed and accepted for publication in the journal on 10 Nov 2017 to be published alongside new peer-reviewed academic research in the field of ionic liquids.
