A new biocompatible ionic liquid P1444DPP (IL1) was investigated as an antiwear additive and compared against Amine Phosphate (AP), one of the commonly used conventional antiwear additives in various biodegradable base stocks. In general, such base stocks (vegetable oil and synthetic esters) are being used for preparing biodegradable industrial lubricants. To further check its efficacy, the results were also compared with one of the ionic liquid P66614DPP (IL2) which has better performance as a lubricant, but is less biocompatible. IL1 showed excellent antiwear performance on pin-on-disc tribometer, when blended in biodegradable base stocks. The steel balls after the pin-on-disc test were analyzed using SEM-EDS technique. The oxidation stability of IL1 was studied by Pressure Differential Scanning Calorimeter (PDSC) and compared with the behavior of AP after incorporating optimized dosage of antioxidant additives in the biodegradable base stock.
