Marijana Blesic, Pedro Verdia Barbara

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter reviews the state of the art in the syntheses, properties, and applications of fluorinated ionic liquids containing moieties with at least three fully fluorinated carbon atoms in their structure. The wide variety of synthetic strategies for the incorporation of fluorinated chains into the cation or anion of ionic liquids, and also the selected physicochemical properties of the resulting fluorinated ionic liquids, are reviewed. The applications of fluorinated ionic liquids that have been investigated by numerous research groups are also summarized, highlighting the main findings regarding their performances. Finally, the main benefits and drawbacks of the implementation of fluorinated ionic liquids in different processes are assessed and the best opportunities for future research on fluorinated ionic liquids are discussed.
