- ... Rare earth elements (REEs) are in high demand as critical materials in modern green and other advanced technologies. This review focuses on the recovery of REEs from waste with ionic liquids (ILs) as green dilutants and extractants to tackle the REE supply challenge. Extraction mechanisms in different extraction systems, including pure ILs, non-functional ILs with extractants, and functional ILs, ...
