The properties of a family of novel quaternary ammonium salts based on the bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide and triflate anions are reported. Binary phase diagrams for some of their mixtures and their electrochemical windows of stability are also reported. The highest conductivity observed in the pure salt systems at 25 °C was 7 × 10-4 S cm-1. An electrochemical window of stability of up to 5 V was measured on graphite electrodes. The effect of salt structure and solvent on conductivity of the salts is also discussed.
