Ionic liquids (ILs) are important new solvents proposed for applications in different separation processes. Herein, an idea of possible use of high pressure in a general strategy of production of 2-phenylethanol (PEA) is discussed. In this work, we present the influence of pressure on the density in binary systems of {1-hexyl-1-methylpyrrolidynium bis{(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl}imide, [HMPYR][NTf2], or 1-dodecyl-3-methylimidazolium bis{(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl}imide, [DoMIM][NTf2] + PEA} in a wide range of temperatures (298.15–348.15 K) and pressures (0.1–40 MPa). The densities at ambient and high pressures are measured to present the physicochemical properties of the ILs used in the process of separation of PEA from aqueous phase. The Tait equation was used for the correlation of density of one-component and two-component systems as a function of mole fraction, temperature, and pressure. The influence of pressure is not significant. These systems exhibit mainly negative molar excess volumes, VE. The solid–liquid phase equilibrium (SLE) of [DoMIM][NTf2] in PEA at atmospheric pressure was measured and compared to the SLE high-pressure results. Additionally, the ternary liquid–liquid phase equilibrium (LLE) at ambient pressure in the {[DoMIM][NTf2] (1) + PEA (2) + water (3)} at temperature T = 308.15 K was investigated. The solubility of water in the [DoMIM][NTf2] is quite high in comparison with that measured by us earlier for ILs (x3 = 0.403) at T = 308.15 K, which results in not very successful average selectivity of extraction of PEA from the aqueous phase. The [DoMIM][NTf2] has shown strong interaction with PEA without the immiscibility region. The ternary system revealed Treybal’s type phase equilibrium in which two partially miscible binaries ([DoMIM][NTf2] + water) and (PEA + water) exist. From the results of LLE in the ternary system, the selectivity and the solute distribution ratio of separation of water/PEA were calculated and compared to the results obtained for the ILs measured earlier by us. The popular NRTL model was used to correlate the experimental tie-lines in ternary LLE. These results may help in a new technological project of “in situ” extraction of PEA from aqueous phase during the biosynthesis.
