Based on our investigations we will report an overview about thermally stable ILs. By pre-selecting a comprehensive matrix of different anions and cations from our substance library of more than 600 compounds, using known physical and chemical data from literature and from our data pool, we identified in carefully chosen screening tests novel interesting structural motifs. The relation between structure and technical performance will be discussed. Finally, an outlook on upcoming commercial applications will be given.
