Abstract

This works follows a publication of our group in J. Chem. Eng. Data2007, 52, 2204–2211 presenting high temperature and pressure density data for five imidazolium-based ionic liquids. At this period, very few ionic liquid density data were available in the literature, especially at high pressure, and the uncertainty of published results was calculated with respect to the literature data available for three of the five ionic liquids studied. Since 2007, the ionic liquid density databank has largely increased. In this work, a comparison of our published data in J. Chem. Eng. Data2007, 52, 2204–2211, with more than 1800 high pressure data coming from the literature up to December 2011 is presented to assess the uncertainty of our published values. The claimed uncertainty is close to 0.31 % for all IL density data sets except in the case of the [C1C2Im][EtSO4], where the uncertainty is up to 1.1 %. Reported data in J. Chem. Eng. Data2007, 52, 2204–2211, for this particular ionic liquid cannot be used as a reference. For this ionic liquid, new density measurements of the same sample batch have been remeasured by using the same experimental technique, and new experimental data presented herein are clearly higher than our previous published results. A 1H NMR analysis of the sample has confirmed hydrolysis of the ethylsulfate anion to ethanol and hydrogenate anion which explains the differences observed between our density data and the literature.
