Friction and wear become the most dominant factors affecting the efficiency of industrial production sector. The development of advanced lubricants and lubricant additives to reduce the friction and wear failures will lead to vital economic and environmental benefits. Recently, ionic liquids received good attention as potential and environmentally-friendly alternate lubricants and lubricant additives. The ionic liquids exhibit enhanced performance in terms of corrosion, viscosity and temperature dependent characteristic and thermal and hydrolysis stabilities. In this study, applications and properties of ionic liquids are discussed.
