Received Date: Feb 21, 2018 / Accepted Date: Feb 22, 2018 / Published Date: Feb 28, 2018
During recent years there has been a growing interest in the use of ionic liquids as substitutes for organic solvents. That has been due mainly to their unique properties, which highlight their very low volatility. This editorial is focus on analyzing the application of ionic liquids as reaction media in enzyme catalyzed reaction. Specifically, the advantages of using ionic liquids as reaction media for biocatalysts were discussed. Other considerations like green aspect of ionic liquids and the recovery of synthetic products from ionic liquid matrix were also analyzed.
