New quaternary ammonium salts that contain polyfluorinated alkyl substituents were prepared by the polyfluoroalkylation of tertiary amines with polyfluorinated alkyl iodides. Metathesis reactions of the iodide salts with fluorine-containing anions resulted in new low melting salts. The iodide salts of the tri(isooctyl)polyfluoroalkyl amines are also liquids at 25°C.
