An ionic liquids have been demonstrated as solvents in the development of green chemistry to reduce environmental impact. The use of ionic liquids has been reported in organic synthesis, chemical separation and electrochemical applications of 1-Butyl-3-Methylimidazolium Trifluoro methanesulfonate (BMIM-OTf) have attracted attention as highly useful and versatile solvents because of their many unique properties. They have high ionic conductivities, wide liquids range and solubilities characteristics. More than that, they are tolerant of strong acids, purified and reused. The usage of ionic liquids is considered environmentally-friendly for dielectrophoresis (DEP) experiments.
