Thermophysical properties of ionic liquids and their mixtures from a new equation of state

In our previous work, a perturbed hard-trimer-sphere equation of state (PHTS EOS) was developed for modeling the phase equilibria of pure ionic liquids (ILs) (M.M. Alavianmehr et al., Ionics 22 (2016) 2447–2459). In this work, we have successfully extended the model to the mixtures of IL + IL and IL + solvent. Two temperature-dependent parameters appearing in the EOS are correlated with two microscopic scaling constants σ, the effective hard-sphere diameter, and ε, the non-bonded interaction energy. The overall average absolute deviation (AAD) of the estimated densities from the literature data using the proposed model with and without non-additivity parameter (λ ij) was found to be 0.44 and 0.79%, respectively. A modified Enskog equation and rough hard-sphere (RHS) theory are combined with our proposed equation of state to calculate the viscosity coefficient of ionic liquids and their mixtures. Finally, from the results obtained, a linear relation between logarithm of surface tension and viscosity property of ionic liquid was developed.
