Temperature dependency of aqueous biphasic systems: An alternative approach for exploring the differences between Coulombic-dominated salts and ionic liquids


Herein we propose an alternative way to distinguish ionic liquids from Coulombic-dominated salts, based not on their upper limit melting temperature (100 °C), but on the trend of their phase-forming abilities to create aqueous biphasic systems as a function of temperature, in which a wider plethora of interactions can be appraised.
