Abstract: Using RBC-Ⅱ type oxygen-bomb combustion calorimeter, the molar combustion enthalpies of room temperature ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ethyl sulfate (EMIES), and 1-methylimidazole were determined at T=(298.15±0.01) K. For EMIES =(-2671±2) kJ·mol-1 and for 1-methylimidazole (-286.3±0.5) kJ·mol-1, respectively. The standard formation enthalpies were calculated to be (-3060±3) kJ·mol-1 for EMIES and (-2145±4) kJ·mol-1 for 1-methylimidazole. The reaction: + (C2H5)2SO4 → [ + C2H5OSO3- ](l) is strong exothermic and its reaction heat, , was determined to be (-102.3±1.0) kJ·mol-1. The standard formation enthalpy of EMIES, ΔfHT, at different temperatures was calculated on the basis of the heat capacity data of EMIES.
