Scholarship of Discovery
New quaternary ammonium salts that contain polyfluorinated alkyl substituents were prepared by the polyfluoroalkylation of tertiary amines with polyfluorinated alkyl iodides. Metathesis reactions of the iodide salts with fluorine-containing anions resulted in new low melting salts. The iodide salts of the tri(isooctyl)polyfluoroalkyl amines are also liquids at 25°C.
