Abstract: Due to its ubiquity in our environment (near or far remote) water is the most investigated liquid of the literature. Since the advent of molecular simulations in the sixties the key point of the theoretical studies on water is the description of its force field. During the last three decades a cohort of model potentials have been published and tested by computer simulations. Our purpose is to appraise what have been accomplished during all these years and what deserves to be improved. In addition we attempt to give some guidance for future investigations. more

Abstract: Cellulose is insoluble in water and many organic solvents, but can be dissolved in a number of solvents of intermediate properties, like N-methylmorpholine N-oxide (NMMO) and ionic liquids (ILs). It can also be dissolved in water at high and low pHs, in particular if a cosolute of intermediate polarity is added. The insolubility in water is often referred to strong intermolecular hydrogen bonding between cellulose molecules. However, an examination of the interactions involved reveals another picture, which suggests that cellulose is significantly amphiphilic and that hydrophobic interactions are important for explaining the solubility pattern of cellulose. more

Abstract: In the adsorption literature, the Van't Hoff equation is used in different manners without any criteria about the concepts of physical-chemistry of equilibrium for calculation of thermodynamic parameters of adsorption. Indeed, the equilibrium constant (K) should be dimensionless for being used in the Van't Hoff equation. However, this is not a simple adjustment of units, as being spread in the literature, to become K dimensionless. In this paper, it will be calculated the equilibrium constants using numeric examples and show the flaws of the thermodynamics calculations, when the value of K is wrongly calculated, and what are the expected results of the changes in enthalpy (ΔH°) and changes in the entropy (ΔS°) that are spread in the literature. more

Abstract: Ionic liquids (ILs) have emerged as an environmentally friendly alternative to the volatile organic solvents. ILs which are made up of cationic and anionic components can be designed to possess a definite set of properties. In this context, the term “designer solvents” has been used to demonstrate the potential of these environment-friendly ILs in chemical reactions. Being designer solvents, they can be modulated to suit the reaction conditions, therefore earning the name “task specific ILs.” Since these liquids are able to dissolve several transition metal complexes, they have often been employed in recent times in several catalytic organic reactions to enhance reaction rates and selectivity. Though primarily used as solvents, they are now finding applications in various fields like catalysis, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, and material science to mention a few. ILs is capable to restrict many of the negative effects of the conventional organic solvents or other catalysts during catalytic reactions and have successfully been used in various catalytic areas affording high catalytic activity. The present review is aimed at exploring the structural characteristics, properties, preparation and applications of ILs in catalytic organic transformations. more
