In the last years significant progress has been made in the field of specific ion effects. We are not far from understanding the Hofmeister series and related phenomena. I will briefly review the present state of art. The understanding of specific ion effects is relevant in many fields, for example to explain the interactions of charged headgroups of amphiphiles with ions in colloidal chemistry and biology, but also to understand the behaviour of Ionic Liquids, i.e. salts with low melting points below 100°C. In the second part of my talk I will report on several new types of Ionic Liquids, for example one that has a simple sodium ion as cation and others which are even edible. Currently, we are also trying to use our knowledge to make ionic surfactants that are liquid at room temperature, i.e amphiphilic Ionic Liquids. I will also make some statements about my point of view concerning the very (too?) fashionable research area of Ionic Liquids.
