Ionic Liquids: Eco-friendly Substitutes for Surface and Interface Applications explores the growing interest in utilizing ionic liquids as sustainable alternatives for various industrial and biological applications. With their unique properties and environmentally friendly nature, ionic liquids have emerged as promising substitutes for toxic and volatile solvents, offering significant advantages in surface and interface chemistry.

This book is divided into two parts: Part 1 covers the basics of ionic liquids, their surface/interface properties, and interactions with metallic surfaces. Part 2 focuses on the wide range of surface and interface applications of ionic liquids, including wastewater treatment, corrosion protection, catalysis, separation processes, medical devices, and sensing applications.

Key Features:

• A complete book fully dedicated to the surface and interface chemistry of ionic liquids with seventeen chapters

• Covers fundamentals, recent progress, and applications in surface/interface chemistry

• Presents up-to-date research and interdisciplinary insights

• Includes relevant references and resources for further exploration

This is a valuable reference for scientists and engineers who want to learn about ionic liquids' chemistry and applications

Audience: Scientists, researchers, professors, engineers, and students in the fields of chemistry, materials science, environmental science, and chemical engineering.


From the first time I met Dr. Chandrabhan Verma in July 2017, I knew he was going to be a star. He had all the qualities of a good researcher. He worked with me and published good research and review articles on highly reputed platforms. He authored and edited many books on different platforms. I believe that the book entitled “Ionic Liquids: Eco-friendly Substitutes for Surface and Interface Applications” is one of the best books on surface and interface applications of ionic liquids. This will be useful for students, professors, academicians and industrialists working particularly in ionic liquids and their applications. Today, as I write this foreword to his new book, I share words that I always hoped.

Dr. Verma joined my research team as a Ph.D student in 2012 at the Department of Chemistry, IIT-BHU Varanasi. Dr Verma is one of the best students I supervised, and I am confident to that he is a well-focused and dedicated researcher. The qualities he has displayed over the years in scientific research suffice him to be a good editor. In his Ph.D. and PDF studies, Dr. Verma did outstanding research and published more than 150 research and review articles in high-impact factor international journals. He also authored and edited more than 10 books on the highly recognized platforms of ACS, RSC, Elsevier, Wiley and Bentham Science. He has total citations of over 7600, an i-10 index of 126 and an H-index of 48. Dr. Verma is ranked 46 among the top 13021 top scientists in Saudi Arabia. He is passionate about his work and I am certain that his passion, as well as his extensive knowledge, will help the institution. I am pleased to recommend this book for the wide readership, and I am happy to write the forward for this excellent book.
