Nowadays, in spite that the application of ionic liquids in some domains is still at infancy stage, the related synthetic technologies have got tremendous development over one century. In this paper, we made an overview on characteristics of five approaches to synthesize ionic liquids and compared the advantages and disadvantages of different methods, and gave recommendations for the best means of synthesizing to the objectives of related studies. Finally, the present work provides a full-scale literature review of the implementation of synthesizing ionic liquids, which could assist the corporations or individuals to search for the most suitable methods and lay the foundation for exploiting more ideal methods to obtain high purity and better yields of ionic liquids in the future.
