In this chapter, we will discuss some other applications that are of great importance in the oil industry and in which ILs have played an important role; however, the IMP has not yet ventured into these topics, at least not with the use of ILs. The topics discussed in this chapter are the separation of light hydrocarbons, separation and extraction of aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, extraction of bitumen from oil sand, and application of ILs in shale stabilization processes.

Keywords: Aliphatic hydrocarbons, Aromatic hydrocarbons, Bitumen extraction, Extraction, Ionic liquids, Separation.
