NJIT Researcher Creates Research Opportunities for Chiral Ionic Liquids http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-092.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-092.phpWed, 09 Mar 2005 00:00:00 -0500 Sanjay V. Malhotra, PhD, an assistant professor of chemistry and environmental science at NJIT who has been promoting further study of chiral ionic liquids, was recently named the invited chairman of an upcoming conference on green chemistry to be held in January of 2006 in New Delhi, India. Because it's possible to synthesize chiral forms of ionic liquids, they hold great promise for advancing basic biomedical research as well as facilitating the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.  “Properly formulated,” said Malhotra, “these organic salts, which are found in natural substances as common as pine cones, could be a safe and effective way to dissolve and recover dangerous chemicals.”
