In this paper, the methodology of non-equilibrium thermodynamics is introduced for kinetics research of CO2 capture by ionic liquids, and the following three key scientific problems are proposed to apply the methodology in kinetics research of CO2 capture by ionic liquids: reliable thermodynamic models, interfacial transport rate description and accurate experimental flux. The obtaining of accurate experimental flux requires reliable experimental kinetics data and the effective transport area in the CO2 capture process by ionic liquids. Research advances in the three key scientific problems are reviewed systematically and further work is analyzed. Finally, perspectives of non-equilibrium thermodynamic research of the kinetics of CO2 capture by ionic liquids are proposed.
