Abstract:

This paper studies the tribological behavior of the ionic liquid methyltrioctylammonium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide ([N1888][NTf2]) as additive at different concentrations (1.25, 2.50, 3.75 and 5.00 wt%) in a polar base oil (diester). A tribometer using a ball-on-disk reciprocating configuration under fully flooded lubrication was used at a frequency of 15 Hz, at three different loads (40, 80 and 120 N), stroke length of 4 mm, and duration of 45 min. Worn surface on the disk was studied by confocal microscopy, SEM and XPS. Main results showed similar coefficient of friction for all lubricant samples; but different wear results were found at different loads, probably related with the chemical states found for fluorine on the worn surface and the temperature-dependent adsorption-desorption processes.
