Role of Ionic Liquids in Enzyme Catalysis

Introduction 

Enzymes are efficient catalysts with rate enhancements under near ambient conditions Enzymes are enantioselective catalysts due to their chiral structure Many economically profitable processes are in operation in fine chemistry, in bulk chemistry, pharmaceuticals that are based on enzyme catalysis

Enzyme Catalysis Aqueous solvent

Non-aqueous Nonsolvent Organic solvent

Ionic liquid Supercritical fluids

Ionic liquids 

Ionic liquids (molten salts) are defined as material containing only ionic species without any neutral molecules.

Exists in liquid form at room temperature or near room temp.

Are nonvolatile and nonflammable


Anions: Anion
