    • Abstract

       

      Solid polymer electrolyte membrane comprising poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), poly(ehylene oxide) (PEO) and different lithium salts (LiClO4, LiBF4 and LiCF3SO3) were prepared by the solution casting technique. The effect of complexing salt on the ionic conductivity of the PVC/PEO host polymer is discussed. Solid polymer electrolyte films were characterized by X-ray diffraction, FTIR spectroscopy, TG/DTA and ac impedance spectroscopic studies. The conductivity studies of these solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) films are carried out as a function of frequency at various temperatures ranging from 302 K to 353 K. The maximum room temperature ionic conductivity is found to be 0.079 × 10-4 S cm-1 for the film containing LiBF4 as the complexing salt. The temperature dependence of the conductivity of polymer electrolyte films seems to obey the Vogel–Tamman–Fulcher (VTF) relation.
