  • U.S. meeting on ionic liquids, held at the American Chemical Society meeting in San Diego in April 2001
  • Ionic Liquids Symposium, held in Melbourne in May 2003
  • 226th ACS National Meeting, New York, NY September 07-11, 2003
  • NIST has initiated a project to provide key physical properties of a subset of RTIL that represent a selection of cations, anions and substituent chemical groups. As identified at the NATO Workshop in Heraklion, Greece, a verified, webbased, public-access database of RTIL properties data is an important need. NIST is addressing this need by evaluating published measurements and capturing the data into a comprehensive data retrieval system known as SOURCE.
    SOURCE is an archival system that presently captures more than 120 properties and contains 1.3 million data points on 17,000 different substances and 12,000 mixtures. The ionic liquids database will be built by using a record structure similar to Source and maintained by the Oracle relational database management system. Guided Data Capture (GDC) software will be used to speed collection of new experimental data directly from experimentalists. The RTIL database will archive important details including original publication details, method(s) used to make the measurements and the uncertainty of the measurements; it will be maintained by the Thermodynamics Research Center (TRC) on a public-access NIST file server with free, unlimited access to those who use it.18
  • In view of this aim Merck KGaA in Darmstadt, Germany, and the Centre for Environmental Research and Technology (UFT) in Bremen, Germany, formed a strategic cooperation to follow this approach, in September 2003.12
