The pH Behavior of Seventeen Deep Eutectic Solvents

Andrea Skulcova, Albert Russ, Michal Jablonsky, Jozef Sima

Abstract


Deep eutectic solvents (DESs) are a unique category of green solvents that have gained attention in biomass processing due to their distinctive properties not offered by traditional solvents. The pH behavior of 17 selected DESs along with their temperature dependence on pH were evaluated in this study. For all investigated DESs, a temperature increase caused a decrease in pH value.

Keywords
