Cytec is the global leader in phosphine technology, which provides access to a broad portfolio of alkylphosphines and derivatives such as tetraalkyl phosphonium salts.

Cytec's phosphonium ionic liquids exhibit a broad range of features and benefits that enable unique solutions for challenging applications. The tunable three dimensional nature of the phosphonium cation enables many physical properties to be tailored to meet specific process requirements.  CYPHOS® phosphonium ionic liquids have high thermal stability and enhanced chemical inertness which allow greater flexibility and tolerance of reaction conditions and reagents.

Jeff Dyck, Cytec Application Technology Group Leader of Phosphine Specialties will deliver a paper entitled "Anti-wear and Extreme Pressure Properties of Oil-Soluble Phosphonium Ionic Liquids as Lubricant Additives" at the conference. Cytec will report comparative wear and extreme pressure for synthetic formulations of phosphonium ionic liquids against those for standard additives.
