Abstract:

In this study, we demonstrated the use of DNA-CTMA DC in combination with PolyVinylidene Fluoride PVDF as a host matrix or separator for Lithium based electrolyte to form solid polymergel like electrolyte for potential application in Li-ion batteries. The addition of DC provided a better thermal stability of the composite electrolyte as shown by the thermos-gravimetric analysis TGA. The AC conductivity measurements suggest that the addition of DC to the gel electrolyte had no effect on the overall ionic conductivity of the composite. The obtained films are flexible with high mechanical stretch-ability as compared to the gel type electrolytes only.
