This paper reports density and speed of sound data for solutions of the ionic liquids (ILs) [C4mim]Cl and [C4mim][CF3SO3] in aqueous solution of 0.05 w/w amino acids of alanine, serine and proline at T = (288.15, 298.15, 308.15 and 318.15) K. From the experimental data measured, the apparent molar volume (Vϕ), isentropic compressibility ( ), and apparent molar isentropic compression ( ) have been calculated. The Vϕ values of [C4mim]Cl and [C4mim][CF3SO3] in the investigated aqueous amino acid solutions decreased by increasing the hydrophobicity of the amino acid and follow the order: serine ˃ alanine ˃ proline. The apparent molar volume and isentropic compressibility values at infinite dilution of the investigated ILs in the aqueous amino acid solutions and their variations with temperature have been determined. The infinite dilution apparent molar volume and adiabatic compressibility for transfer of the studied ILs from water to aqueous solutions of the amino acids have been calculated and the results were discussed in terms of different interactions existing in these solutions.
