Description: This article discusses the mathematical correlations for describing enthalpies of solvation of organic vapors and gaseous solutes into ionic liquid solvents. Abstract: Previously reported ion-specific equation coefficients for the Abraham general solvation model are updated using recently published enthalpy of solution data for organic solutes dissolved in room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs). Reported for the first time are equation coefficients for 1-hexyloxymethyl-3-methylimidazolium, 1,3-dihexyloxymethylimidazolium, 3-methyl-N-butylpyridinium, tris(pentafluoroethyl)trifluoro phosphate, and tetracyanoborate ions. In total 12 sets of cation-specific and 10 sets of anion-specific equation coefficients have been determined for each model. The derived correlations describe the 942 experimental enthalpies of solvation to within a standard deviation of about 1.65 kJ/mol.
