Summary The bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide ion has recently been used in its lithium salt as a useful ion in solid polymer electrolytes because of the reduced degree of ion interaction its diffuse charge generates. In this work we have synthesised a number of novel salts based on the ammonium and pyrrolidinium cations of this anion. The salts all show reduced melting points compared with analogous halide salts. In some cases they are molten at room temperature. This latter group of salts have been characterized with respect to their properties as ionic liquids; the highest room temperature conductivity 2 mS cm−1 being exhibited by methyl butyl pyrrolidinium imide. Many of the salts are glass forming, exhibiting glass transition temperatures in the region of −90°C.
