The in silico VolSurfþ descriptors, accounting for both cationic and anionic structural features of ionic liquids (ILs) were used to develop a Partial Least Squares (PLS) model able to establish a Quantitative Structure Property Relationship (QSPR) correlation with their solvatochromic dye Nile Red polarity. The PLS model allowed prediction of ENR values for 116 ILs providing an in silico ILs polarity database.
