Book Description

Sustainable Catalysis in Ionic Liquids provides an up-to-date overview of the relatively underexplored area of the use of room temperature ionic liquids as organocatalysts for a range of organic reactions, including polymerizations. Using organic molecules to promote reactions is an attractive option as these organic molecules can be safer than metal-based options. However, it is still important to be able to recycle and reuse these organic promoters. Ionic liquids provide this opportunity.

Pedro Lozano is a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Murcia, Spain. His current research interests are related to enzyme technology with particular focus on the use of enzymes in ionic liquids and supercritical fluids.

Lozano was born in Ceutí, Spain, in 1961. He received his Ph.D. degree in sciences (chemistry) from the University of Murcia in 1988, under the supervision of Professors José L. Iborra and Arturo Manjón. Between 1990 and 1991, Lozano spent two years at the Centre de Bioingénierie Gilbert Durand, Toulouse (France) as a Postdoctoral Fellow under the supervision of Professor Didier Combes. In 1993, he returned to the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Murcia (Spain) as a Lecturer in biochemistry and molecular biology, being finally promoted to a Full Professor in 2004. Since 1996, he has been the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry and the Coordinator of the Biochemistry degree at the University of Murcia.

Lozano's research activity has always been related with enzyme technology under nonconventional media. His particular research interest focuses on the use of enzymes in neoteric solvents, that is, ionic liquids and supercritical fluids.
