Disruption of the three-dimensional network of suberin in cork by cholinium hexanoate leads to its efficient and selective isolation. The reaction mechanism, which likely involves selective cleavage of some inter-monomeric bonds in suberin, was still unanswered. To address this question, the role of the ionic liq. during suberin depolymn. and during cleavage of std. compds. carrying key chem. ...
