Deep Eutectic Solvents as a novel extraction system for microalgae

Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) are a new class of solvents with tuneable physicochemical properties. These solvents are easy to prepare and could be synthesized from renewable materials. However, the back-extraction of these solvents is still unsuccessful. This study aims to develop a DES-based extraction system for microalgae biorefinery.
