The viscosity of four imidazolium-based ionic liquids is analyzed as a function of pressure and temperature. Experimental measurements were carried out using an electromagnetic moving piston viscometer in the 303-353 K and 0.1-70 MPa ranges on synthesized ultrapure samples, and compared with available literature data. Molecular dynamics simulations were used to analyze the fluids' dynamic properties from a nanoscopic viewpoint, with special attention paid to self-diffusion coefficients and dynamic viscosity. Simulated properties are in excellent agreement with experimental results in spite of the glasslike dynamics of some of the studied fluids.
