Our review highlights the most recent developments in ionic liquid (IL) chemistry where the “well-known” description of IL properties sometimes proves to be inaccurate. However, in the authors’ opinion, all these new research developments concerning ionic liquid properties serve to update knowledge on the typical physical and chemical properties of ILs, which is significant to both theoretical research and industrial applications. Therefore, rather than attempting to give a comprehensive overview of ionic liquid chemistry, the paper presents an opportunity to understand deep eutectic solvents (DES) through a more complete and accurate view.
