A modified version of a standard device for measuring gas adsorption and desorption isotherms and surface area of adsorbents and catalysts (ASAP (Accelerated Surface Area and Porosimetry System) 2020, Micromeritics USA) is used for the first time to measure gas solubilities (i.e., CO2) in low vapor pressure liquids (i.e., the IUPAC standard ionic liquid 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide ([C6mim][Tf2N])) in the Henry's law region. The solubility data are in very good agreement with the reported data in literature. Furthermore, the Henry's law constants are calculated from the solubility data and compared to the experimental data found in literature. The results from this study demonstrate that Micromeritics ASAP 2020 is a suitable apparatus for gas absorption by solvents with reduced vapor pressures.
