A novel ionic liquid, namely, N-methyl-N-(2′,3′-epoxypropyl)-2-oxopyrrolidiniumchloride [Epmpyr]+[Cl]− was synthesized and characterized by different techniques such as NMR (1H and 13C), FTIR, and elemental analysis. The water content of the ionic liquid was checked by Karl Fisher titration. Further, the density, �?, and speed of sound, u, were measured for the above ionic liquid and the corresponding binary systems with water or ethanol at different temperatures ranging from (293.15 to 313.15) K. The derived thermodynamic properties for instance excess molar volumes, VEm isentropic compressibility, κs, and deviation in isentropic compressibility, Δκs, were investigated from the density and speed of sound data, respectively. It is noted that density and speed of sound of the ionic liquid and its binary mixtures were decreased with increase in temperature, whereas excess molar volume, isentropic compressibility, and deviation in isentropic compressibility values increased. Derived properties such as excess molar volumes, and deviation in isentropic compressibility data were fitted to the Redlich-Kister polynomial equation. The measured and calculated data were interpreted in terms of intermolecular interfaces and structural effects between similar and dissimilar molecules upon mixing.
