Call for Papers – NaDES for Biomass valorization: new insights on a green technology

PeerJ Analytical Chemistry Special Issue focused on the application of natural deep eutectic solvents (NaDES) in products


The principles of ‘green chemistry’ are gaining traction in many sectors, including cosmetics and fragrances, due to the need to reduce pollution from toxic chemicals, make industrial processes safer and more sustainable, and provide consumers with ‘clean-labelled products’. During the last decade, green technology is moving from an option to a must in modern industrial processing.

Solvents are the core of the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, agrochemical, chemical, and biotechnological process technologies. The application of natural deep eutectic solvents (NaDES) – natural product-based green liquids became the most actively investigated as potential green solvents.

NaDES are considered the promising alternative to conventional organic solvents, suitable for green extraction since they have high solvency, high flash points with low toxicity and low environmental impacts, easily biodegradable, obtained from renewable (non-petrochemical) resources at a reasonable price and easy to recycle without any deleterious effect to the environment.

This Special Issue solicits Research Articles, Literature Review Articles and Method Development Articles focused on the research and application of NaDES.
