An enterprise database of pure ionic liquids (ILs) for its use in the Aspen ONE programs is presented. The database is identified as ILUAM, and the first version (ILUAM01) contains 100 ILs composed of 30 cations and 23 anions. The IL components were introduced in Aspen Properties as pseudocomponents using information from the computational COSMO-RS method and from experimental viscosity data. ILUAM database was created to be used along with the COSMOSAC property model implemented in Aspen Plus, allowing evaluating IL process performance without needing further experimental data. Some validation tests were carried out to demonstrate the successful incorporation of ILs in the Aspen Plus property system. Then, the performance of ILUAM01 database in thermodynamic property predictions of mixtures involving ILs and conventional chemical compounds was revised in terms of activity coefficients at infinite dilution and phase equilibrium data. The property description of pure ILs and IL mixtures with conventional chemical compounds using COSMO-based/Aspen Plus approach was found with the accuracy level required in the conceptual design of new processes. ILUAM database offers the opportunity of performing systematic evaluation of potential industrial applications of ILs and their competitiveness as alternative to conventional solvents.
