Dicationic ionic liquids as lubricants

Twelve dicationic ionic liquids have been investigated for their potential inlubricants. The dications selected were synthesized from oligoethylene glycols linking two cationic moieties based on either N-methylimidazolium or N-methylpyrrolidinium at the extremities.
