A bottle of ionic liquid in a chemistry laboratory. An ionic liquid is a salt in liquid state. This is part of research into fast, environmentally friendly methods to neutralize chemical warfare agents such as sarin and VX using certain ionic liquids. Follow-on research with ionic liquids will determine whether the room-temperature molten salts can neutralize certain biological agents.
