K.R.S. thanks both Prof. Pietro Tundo and Dr. Alvise Perosa for their support, friendship, and enthusiasm over the years of the Venice Green Chemistry Summer School, and for believing in ionic liquids when many scientists thought they were all hype with no substance. Their joie de vivre is infectious, and transfers itself to teachers and students alike. They are the reason for the success of the project. We would both like to express our gratitude for the continuing support of the QUILL Industrial Advisory Board, bp, and the EPSRC (Portfolio Partnership Scheme, grant no. EP/D09538/1).
