Abstract

We report on the use of protic ionic liquids, pILs, as solvents for the solubilisation and stabilization of viruses. We show that the shelf life of the pIL stabilized tobacco mosaic virus is significantly enhanced when compared to traditional phosphate buffer. This has new opportunities for the preparation, characterization and storage of viruses and virus based technologies.
