In the current context linked to sustainable development as well as to the availability of raw materials of petrochemical origin and to the naturalness desired by consumers, the term "biosourced" appears more and more. This presentation will address the synthesis of ionic liquids qualified as biosourced (monocatenar or bolaform systems) from specific agro-resources according to several principles of green chemistry. The eco-toxic and biodegradable characteristics of these solvents will be discussed. As these solvents could be used to solubilize lignocellulosic biomass and/or to extract bioactive compounds (again from plant sourcing), their physicochemical characteristics such as density, speed of sound and heat capacity have to be determined. The synthesis and the characterization by NMR, IR and elemental analysis are realized in France and the physico-chemical part in Czech Republic.
