Polyethylene glycol functionalized dicationic ionic liquids with alkyl or polyfluoroalkyl substituents as high temperature lubricants

Abstract

A series of new polyethylene glycol functionalized dicationic ionic liquids with alkyl or polyfluoroalkyl substitutents (9–17 and 19–24) has been prepared. Important physical properties of these liquids, including glass transition (Tg) and decomposition temperatures (Td), solubility in common solvents, density (d) and viscosity (η), were measured. These ionic liquids show high thermal stability and good lubricity. In general, imidazolium based dicationic liquids have higher Td (>415 °C) than their triazolium analogues. The introduction of polyfluoroalkyl groups boosts antiwear properties but also leads to a decrease in Td. These ionic liquids also exhibit excellent tribological characteristics even at 300 °C, which suggests use as high temperature lubricants.
