Abstract

This project is a continuation of the project conducted by Austin Ramsey under the supervision of Dr. Klaus Woelk (Advisor) and Dr. Rex Gerald during the 2010-2011 academic year. This project was conducted by the aforementioned persons in order to test the possibility of using ionic liquids as the working fluid in a cooling system. The experiments conducted were designed to test ionic liquids in an absorption desorption cycle. The ionic liquid once again chosen was 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ethyl sulfate.
