Abstract

A new calibration procedure was used and four new temperatureprobes have been placed on afalling-body viscometer to improve its accuracy. The new configuration and calibrationprocedure allow measuring viscosities with an uncertainty of 3.5% at pressures up to 150 MPa.This device was employed to measure viscosities as a function of temperature and pressure fortwo ionic liquids (ILs): 1-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium
tris(pentafluoroethyl)trifluorophosphateand 1-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium trifluoromethanesulfonate.Besides, we have measured the flow curves at pressures up to 75 MPa and shear rates up to1000 s-1in a Couette rheometer. Dynamic viscosities were correlated as function of temperature and pressure with four differentequations with average absolute deviation lower than 1%. The pressure-viscosity and temperature-viscosity derived properties were analyzed and compared with those of other ionic liquids. Furthermore, experimental data were used to check the application of the thermodynamic scaling approach as well as the hard-sphere scheme. Both models represent the viscosity values with average relative deviations lower than 2%.
