We report results of molecular dynamics simulations characterizing the solvation and interaction of small apolar particles such as methane and xenon in imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs). The simulations are able to reproduce semiquantitatively the anomalous temperature dependence of the solubility of apolar particles in the infinite dilution regime. We… CONTINUE READING
