Isothermal and dynamic methodologies were used to study the thermal degradation of 8 novel fatty acid anion-based ionic liquids (FAILs): methyltrioctylammonium hexanoate [N ][C ], methyltrioctylammonium octanoate [N ][C ], tetrahexylammonium octanoate [N ][C ], methyltrioctylammonium laurate [N ][C ], methyltrioctylammonium palmitate [N ][C ], tetrahexylammonium palmitate [N ][C ], methyltrioctylammonium stearate [N ][C ] and methyltrioctylammonium oleate [N ][C ]. The thermal stability of these FAILs is controlled by both the cation and anion and most samples have an onset decomposition temperature (T ) below 200 °C. All the FAILs exhibited lower thermal stability under a nitrogen atmosphere than commercially available ILs tested previously in lubrication studies, particularly when compared to those containing the [NTf ] anion. The [N ][C ] and [N ][C ] showed the highest long-term thermal stability, probably related to their stronger anion-cation electrostatic interaction. This led to a multi-step thermal decomposition mechanism observed in the DTG results. Finally, isoconversional modelling for the [N ][C ] agrees with isothermal results. 8,8,8,1 6:0 8,8,8,1 8:0 6,6,6,6 8:0 8,8,8,1 12:0 8,8,8,1 16:0 6,6,6,6 16:0 8,8,8,1 18:0 8,8,8,1 18:1 onset 2 8,8,8,1 6:0 8,8,8,1 8:0 8,8,8,1 12:0 −
