Desulfurization of the dibenzothiophene ) (DBT) by using -based imidazolium-basedionic ionic i liquids(Ils)

In this work we have examined the industrial scale extraction process of ultra low sulfur diesel with the help of simulation software ASPEN Plus®.This work focuses on the [Cnmim][BF4](imidazolium-based) ionic liquid and employed it in the extractive desulfurization of the dibenzothiophene (DBT) from the model diesel fuel under a very mild process conditions.UNIFAC(uniquasi functional activity) was chosen as the thermodynamic method to model the ionic liquid on ASPEN Plus® and different physical and chemical properties were then taken from the literature to be incorporated in the simulation model. Different parameteric analysis were studied for the removal of thiophene-based compounds from the model diesel. The results acquired shows the significance of imidazolium-based ionic liquids(ILs) for the extraction ofS- contentsfrom the liquid fuels atan optimal processconditions of40ᵒC and 2barpressure with the 2.8: 1 ratio of ionic liquid and model diesel which validates the experimental results obtained previously in the literature.
