Abstract

Summary
Lignocellulosic biomass represents one of the most important renewable energy sources for Europe, being mainly used for energy production through combustion. The growing awareness of the need for energy efficiency gains requires new approaches for problems that, during the time of cheap energy and unlimited raw materials resources, were not the object of special care for industry and consequently, for research. Lignocellulosic biomass is composed of cellulose (35 to 50 %), lignin (18 to 30%), hemicelluloses (15 to 30%), and small amounts of extractive compounds.1,2 Due to the complex composition and structure of this type of biomass, their fractionation, in an effective and rentable way, is still a challenge target. \n\nIndustrially, biomass fractionation into cellulosic pulp and lignin is mainly accomplished by the kraft process, which is not comprehensive in the utilization of noncellulosic components and causes complaints from the standpoint of environmental concerns. Most of the cellulose dissolution processes also cause serious environmental problems due to the solvents used.3,4 In recent years, a need for more “green” solvents and processes as gain the attention of the researchers. Ionic liquids (ILs) have been recently explored as novel “green” solvents for lignocellulosic materials.51-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([emim][OAc]) has been studied as one of the most promissory ILs to dissolve cellulose1–3,6,7 although its properties are not well known. The amount of water in the ionic liquid influence their capacity to dissolve cellulose8–10 despite this fact there also a lack about the influence of water in the physical properties of the ILs, even in the case of the [emim][OAc]. \nIn this work the thermal and electrical conductivity, density, speed of sound and viscosity of binary mixtures of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([emim][OAc]) and water, and infinite dilution diffusion coefficients were measured at atmospheric pressure. Total miscibility of the two liquids was found in the temperature range studied (293.15 to 333.15 K).
