Herein, we present a computational and experimental study assessing the solubility of tobramycin 1 in a series of hydrophilic room temperature ionic liquids (RTIL). We show that hydrophilic ionic liquids, in particular those containing acetate, [OAc]-, enable significantly enhanced solubilisation of tobramycin in comparison to conventional molecular solvents.
