Ionic liquids are receiving an upsurge of interest as green solvents; primarily as replacements for conventional media in chemical processes. This review presents an overview of the chemistry that has been developed utilising ionic liquids as either catalyst and/or solvent, with particular emphasis on processes that have been taken beyond the pre-competetive laboratory stage and represent clean industrial technology with significant cost and enviromental benefits.
