Ionic liquids have a broad spectrum of applications ranging from gas separation to sensors and pharmaceuticals. Rational selection of the constituent ions is key to achieving tailor-made materials with functional properties. To facilitate the discovery of new ionic liquids for sustainable applications, we have created a virtual library of over 8 million synthetically feasible ionic liquids. Each structure has been evaluated for their-task suitability using data-driven statistical models calculated for 12 highly relevant properties: melting point, thermal decomposition, glass transition, heat capacity, viscosity, density, cytotoxicity, CO 2 solubility, surface tension, and electrical and thermal conductivity. For comparison, values of six properties computed using quantum chemistry based equilibrium thermodynamics COSMO-RS methods are also provided. We believe the data set will be useful for future efforts directed towards targeted synthesis and optimization.
