Several ionic liquids (ILs) comprising [B(hfip)4 ](-) [hfip=OCH(CF3 )2 ] or [Al(hfip)4 ](-) anions and imidazolium or ammonium cations were prepared and mixed with up to 270 mol % of dimethyl carbonate (DMC). The viscosities, conductivities, and self-diffusion constants of these mixtures and, where possible, of the neat ILs were measured and compared with(More)
Several, partly new, ionic liquids (ILs) containing imidazolium and ammonium cations as well as the medium-sized [NTf2 ](-) (0.230 nm(3) ; Tf=CF3 SO3 (-) ) and the large [Al(hfip)4 ](-) (0.581 nm(3) ; hfip=OC(H)(CF3 )2 ) anions were synthesized and characterized. Their temperature-dependent viscosities and conductivities between 25 and 80 °C showed typical(More)
Several new ionic liquids (ILs) were prepared from Na[B(tfe)4] (tfe=OCH2 CF3 ) via metathesis, including one room temperature IL (RTIL). Prior to synthesis, suitable cations were chosen via predictive quantum-chemical calculations. Nuclear magnetic resonance monitoring over almost a month showed a total stability of the anion in the presence of water. The(More)
Weakly coordinating borate or aluminate anions have recently been shown to yield interesting properties of the resulting ionic liquids (ILs). The same is true for large phenyl-substituted imidazolium cations, which can be tuned by the choice, position, or number of substituents on the aromatic ring. We were therefore interested to combine these aryl alkyl(More)
Ionic liquids (ILs) are defined as salts with melting points below 100 °C. They attracted much attention in the last two decades due to their unique set of properties, including high conductivities, low viscosities, negligible vapor pressure, and high electrochemical resistance. ILs are seen as tunable systems, of which (also in mixtures) up to 10(19)(More)
