NIST Ionic Liquids Database - (IL Thermo)

NIST/TRC Ionic Liquids Database

ILThermo is a web-based ionic liquids database available free to the public. It aims to provide users worldwide with up-to-date information on publications of experimental investigation on ionic liquids, including numerical values of chemical and physical properties, measurement methods, sample purity, uncertainty of property values, as well as many other significant measurement details. The database can be searched by means of the ions constituting the ionic liquids, the ionic liquids themselves, their properties, and references.

The new version 2.0 features an improved web interface and over three times more information as compared to the previous release: it includes data for more than 1,000 ionic liquids and nearly 280,000 experimental data points.
