Ionic liquid-based strategies are presented as a generic approach to tailoring catalysts as a replacement of hazardous acids in industrially-relevant reactions, to generate both environmentally and economically sustainable processes. The possibilities of application of new bronsted and Lewis acidic ionic liquids as catalysts, mainly in the synthesis of fine chemicals: lactones, amides, esters, Diels-Alder cycloadducts and alkilobenzenes are presented.
