Chemistry: Develop ionic liquid drugs Pharmaceutical studies are always looking for the next drug to help in treatments and preventions of diseases and illnesses. We probably don’t realize all the challenging work or thought that goes into developing these drugs. Patients aren’t thinking of the process and scientific research that went into the drug they were prescribed. They’re only thinking of how this will help their current health situation. There is really a bigger perspective when it comes to developing prescription drugs. An ionic liquid is a salt in a liquid state in which the ions are poorly coordinated, this would result in the solvents being liquid below 100°C, or even at room temperature. One ion would have to have a delocalized charge and one component is to be organic for this to prevent the formation of a stable crystal lattice. Any salt that melts without decomposing or vaporizing would be considered an ionic liquid.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
