Influence of Structural Variations in 1-Alkyl(aralkyl)-3-Methylimidazolium Hexafluorophosphates and Bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imides on Physical Properties of the Ionic Liquids

A series of twenty four 1-alkyl(aralkyl)-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphates and bis(trifluoromethyl-sulfonyl)imides are prepared and the influence of structural variations in the imidazolium cation and the identity of the anion on physical properties (phase transition, density, viscosity, and surface tension) of the ionic liquids is determined.
