Ionic liquids, salts which have liquid phase at temperature below 100°C, have been widely introduced in engineering applications, including absorption cooling systems. The application of ionic liquids in absorption cooling systems is intended to remove the disadvantages of conventional working fluids such as corrosion and crystallization. In terms of thermodynamic performances, theoretical investigation based on solubility behavior of ionic liquids in natural refrigerants show a competitive performance in comparison with conventional working fluid. Nevertheless, heat transfer performance, which is also an important key in absorption cooling systems, particularly in terms of system design and size, needs to be deeply explored and investigated. This study aims to assess the thermal and transport properties of ionic liquids as absorbent in relation to the heat and mass transfer characteristics of these working fluids. The thermal and transport properties of ionic liquids proposed as absorbent for absorption cooling systems are collected, and heat and mass transfer characteristic of these ionic liquids based on their thermal and transport properties are investigated and analyzed. Finally, the most suitable ionic liquids for absorption machines, both in terms of thermodynamics and heat and mass transfer performances can be proposed.
