In this work, a quantitative structure–property relationship (QSPR) model based on atom-type electrotopological state (E-state) indices has been developed for predicting the dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction (DLLME) enrichment effect for aromatic organics by using 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([OMIM][PF6]) ionic liquid as extractant. The enrichment factors of the aromatic organics obtained through DLLME-IL process were used as the dependent variable of the multiple linear regression (MLR) equation. The E-state indices of those organic compounds which combined together both electronic and topological characteristics of the analyzed molecules were used as molecular structure descriptors and the independent variable of the equation. The squared correlation coefficient R2 for the MLR was 0.992 for the training set of 33 compounds. For the test set of 8 compounds, the linear regression coefficient was R2 = 0.985. The results of this study showed that it can successfully predict enrichment factors of [OMIM][PF6] in DLLME by using atom-type E-state indices, which can provide one more way for predicting the ability of ionic liquid to extract organic compounds based on their molecular structures.
