Title : Introduction, types, properties, and applications of switchable solvents: A review


Switchable solvents are liquids that have the aptitude to change their physical characteristics up to an excessive degree. The incomparable performance of these liquids is administered through their reversible response to external stimuli, for instance, variation in temperature conditions and/or through the addition or removal of gas. Such consequences of the reaction reversibility allow these liquids to revert back to their original actual state with little alterations. One of the best-known examples of such a kind is the cost-effective, environmentally friendly, nontoxic and non-inflammable waste carbon dioxide gas at 1 atm of pressure. The extra advantage associated with this is their easy removability. Extending the possibility of their switchability of these solvents in terms of their physical characteristics and polarity, including their ionic or covalent character, liquid or gaseous state, can be governed by altering their molecular approaches. Such practices unlock the leading pathways for successive basic research and impending chemical procedural progress. The current review article focused on the classification, chronology, characteristics and applications of switchable solvents with more emphasis on their exploitation in the field of Separation, Catalysis, and Energy.
