Abstract: Ionic liquids as green solvents have shown important application in the extraction and separation of nonferrous metals. The new application perspective, the important fundamental and the applied studies of the extraction and separation of nonferrous metals in ionic liquids, including the dissolution and corrosion of metal and metal oxide, hydrometallurgy of chalcopyrite and metallic oxidized ore, and extraction and separation of metal ions, are introduced.
Key words: ionic liquids; hydrometallurgy; nonferrous metals; metal oxides; mineral processing;extraction and separation of metal ions
