Chemical methodology: New synthetic methods to prepare ionic liquids containing the hypophosphite (HP) and carbon-extended dicyanamide (DCA) anions (vinylogous DCA and N,N′-dicyanoformamide (DCF)) have been developed (see scheme). The performance of these materials as hypergolic ionic liquids has also been evaluated.
