Abstract:
A switchable-hydrophilicity solvent system, consisting of a fatty acid-based natural deep eutectic solvent (NaDES), complemented by a bio-friendly dilute amine solution, has been introduced. The potential of the most benign switchable solvent system has been characterised in microalgae biorefining according to the recently proposed ‘Circular Extraction’ scheme.
