Interest in ionic liquids (ILs) has increased due to their promising use as “green solvents” because of their negligible vapor pressure. However, their solubility in water could lead to their dispersion into the environment through liquid effluents, generating an important toxicological effect in soils and seawater. One of the most relevant parameters related to the assessment of environmental risk is the octanol-water partition coefficient (Kow).
