Ionic liquids (ILs) are receiving increasing attention as reaction media and alternative solvents within the context of sustainable and green chemistry. Even though its growing use does not lead to pollution, we still need to figure out how to biodegrade it in case of accident mass release into the soil or water-courses. Biodegradation of ionic liquids in soil will be monitored in this project. For Part A of the project, tests will be carried out by analyzing the two soil samples from two different placeswhich are soils from hill area and soils from coastal area. Those two samples will undergo a series of processes and will be monitored all the time. For part B, soil samples from coastal area and hill area will be used to degrade ionic liquid at different temperatures for 60 hours at three different temperatures. The quest for the biodegradation agent will take around6 months.
