Summary: Two separate synthetic routes of preparation of new pyrrolidinium-based polymeric ionic liquids were compared. The first method utilized the modification of a commercial poly(diallyldimethylammonium) chloride via a direct anion exchange with several anions. The second route involved the anion exchange leading to several diallyldimethylammonium ionic liquid monomers having different anions and a subsequent polymerization. The latter method is particularly interesting for attaining tunable copolymers according to the desired properties of PILs. Both methods successfully resulted in ionic liquid polymers that are finding their way in a wide range of emerging applications.
