Dicationic ionic liquids are attractive new group of ionic liquids that acquire higher melting point, wider liquid range and better thermal stability. However, the exploration made on the utilization of these dicationic ionic liquids in any application is still limited. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this is the first review article that discuss about this new type of ionic liquids. This review describes about ionic liquids in general and gives a survey on the latest developments and progress concerning dicationic ionic liquids, from their classifications and properties to their employment in many applications.
