Abstract

The cathodic and anodic: potential limit of eleven different ionic liquids were determined at a mercury hemisphere electrode. Ionic liquids containing the phosphonium cation (tri(n-hexyl)tetradecylphosphonium, [P-14.6,P-6.6](+)) give the largest potential window, especially When Coupled to a trifluorotris(pentafluoroethyl)- [FAP](-). or bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide, [NTf2](-), anion.
