Cecair ionik (Ionic liquids), oleh-oleh dari COIL-3

Hasil diskusi dengan dosen ITB soal penangkapan CO2 dan mereka sedikit membicarakan soal cecair ionik. Penasaran ingin mengetahui soal ini dan benar memang menarik untuk dibaca topik ini.

Beberapa waktu lalu penulis diajak wisata intelektual oleh pimpinan grup riset ke Cairns, Queensland, dalam rangka Congress on Ionic Liquids 3 (COIL-3). Cecair ionik bukan lagi mainan kimiawan di laboratorium, kini, kalangan industri telah melirik potensinya sebagai salah satu material masa depan. Berikut ini secara singkat akan dijabarkan beberapa titik penting yang perlu dipelajari bagi pemula maupun awam di bidang cecair ionik (ionic liquids).
