High pressure densities up to 200 MPa from 313 to 393 K and atmospheric pressure viscosities from 293 to 373 K for two alkyl phosphate anion ionic liquids, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium dimethylphosphate ([emim][DMP]) and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium dimethylphosphate ([bmim][DMP]), are reported. Several forms of the Tait equation were applied and all forms could correlate the data to within 0.03% average relative deviation (ARD). The derivative properties calculated had specific trends for the ionic liquids. The ε∗-modified Sanchez-Lacombe equation of state could correlate the data to within an ARD of 0.07%, and the deviations were lower than those of the original Sanchez-Lacombe equation of state (0.19%). The improvement by ε∗-modified Sanchez-Lacombe equation of state can be attributed its assumed close-packed density structure at low temperature.
