The activity coefficients at infinite dilution, γ13∞ and gas-liquid partition coefficients, KLfor 46 solutes: alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, cycloalkanes, aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, thiophene, ethers, ketones, acetic acid, and water in the ionic liquid 1-(3-hydroxypropyl) pyridinium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)-amide were determined by gas-liquid chromatography at the temperatures from (308.15 to 378.15) K. The partial molar excess Gibbs free energies ΔG1E,∞, enthalpies ΔH1E,∞ and entropies ΔS1E,∞ at infinite dilution were calculated from the experimental γ13∞ values obtained over the temperature range. The selectivities for aliphatic/aromatic hydrocarbons separation problem were calculated from the γ13∞ and compared to the literature values for other ionic liquids based on bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)-amide anion, NMP and sulfolane. It was found that the investigated ionic liquid shows much higher selectivity at infinite dilution than the general used organic solvents such as NMP, sulfolane and other ionic liquids. Additionally the selectivities for selected compounds which form azeotropic mixtures were calculated. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
