Influence of the pressure, temperature, cation and anion on the volumetric properties of ionic liquids: New experimental values for two salts
Experimental densities of two ionic liquids (ILs), 1-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide ([C4C1Pyrr][NTf2]) and 1-(2-methoxyethyl)-1-methyl-pyrrolidinium tris(pentafluoroethyl)trifluorophosphate ([C1OC2C1Pyrr][(C2F5)3PF3]), were measured over a broad temperature and pressure range, i.e. from (278.15 to 398.15) K and up to 120 MPa, respectively. The isobaric thermal expansion coefficient of the two ILs was determined from these measurements finding a non-monotonous behaviour over the entire pressure range. The density values obtained were used to analyse the prediction ability of the methods proposed by Gardas and Coutinho and by Jacquemin et al. Furthermore, the influence of the cation and anion structure on the densities and the isothermal compressibilities was analyzed, also considering literature values. âº Experimental densities of 2 ILs from (278.15 to 398.15) K up to 120 MPa are provided. âº The anion ÎºT sequence is [NTf2]− > [C(CN)3]− > [C2SO4]− > [C1SO4]− > [PF6] − ≈ [BF4] −. âº Gardas-Coutinho and Jacquemin et al. predictive methods were analysed for ÎºT and Î±p. âº Minima in Î±p (T) curves were found for all the isobars in agreement with recent works.
