Abstract

VersatAAIL Surfactants: Biodegradable, chiral amino acid ionic liquid surfactants (AAILSs) with a very high surface activity are synthesized and characterized. The AAILS can be applied as task-specific ionic liquids; two examples given are the mitigation of harmful algal blooms from sea water and the shape- and size-specific synthesis of nanomaterials.
