In current work, Perturbed Chain- Statistical Associating Fluid Theory (PC-SAFT) EoS together with the Reaction Equilibrium Thermodynamic Model (RETM) was employed to correlate H2S solubility in three carboxylate ionic liquids including [emim][Ace], [bmim][Ace] and [hmim][Ace]. The RETM proposes a chemical reaction approach between IL (B) and H2S (A) in the liquid phase. Moreover PC-SAFT EoS contributes for VLE calculations. All the H2S and the investigated ILs, as self-associating components, assumed to follow 2B association scheme.
Five adjustable variables of PC- SAFT EoS for pure components were calculated using experimental data of liquid density and vapor pressure. Afterwards, the binary systems were investigated applying RETM. Indeed, two nested loops calculate the liquid phase, total pressure and vapor phase concentrations, respectively. For these systems, AAD% equal to 2.29, 3.09 and 7.65 were obtained for all ILs respectively.
