Using a customized capillary gas–liquid chromatography column, Henry’s constants and activity coefficients at infinite dilution are reported for benzene, toluene, ethyl acetate, 1,4-dioxane, 1,2-dimethoxyethane, acetonitrile, nitromethane, tetrahydrofuran, chloroform, methanol, ethanol, and 1-propanol in ionic liquids 1-butyl,3-methylimidazolium hydrogen sulfate [BMIM][HSO4] and 1-methyl,3-trimethylsilylmethylimidazolium [SiMIM][Cl] chloride from 313 to 413 K. These acidic ionic liquids may provide suitable media for acid-catalyzed chemical reactions.
