IoLiTec produces and distributes ionic liquids and nano-materials for use in the area of sustainable technologies.

IoLiTec GmbH is a dynamic, innovative and goal-oriented company whose core technology represents an innovative class of materials, the so-called “ionic liquids,” which are also frequently called “designer solvents.” At the moment, IoLiTec offers more than 300 ionic liquids, and about 200 nano-technology products whose manifold applications range from green, low-emission solvents for applications in the area of process engineering and biotechnology to media that store heat and cold. Other products include high-performance electrolytes for lithium-ion batteries, supercaps (supercapacitators), and fuel cells. The services IoLiTec offers have been expanded to include custom syntheses and development support services, so that we can make new developments possible in close consultation with our customers. Among the more than 3,000 customers that we have in the meantime throughout the world are, in addition to customers from the chemical industry, in particular a number from the areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and the automotive industry.

Thanks to the support from ZFHN, we were able to fully concentrate on developing our production technology to the point where we took the technological lead in our market.
