A useful scheme for assessing the electrolytic properties of solid electrolytes is that of plotting electronic and electrolytic conduction domains simultaneously with proposed application domains on chemical potential vs 1T diagrams. Accordingly, the concept and theoretical origins of conduction domains for solid electrolyte materials are outlined briefly. The origin and usefulness of the concept is discussed with respect to proposed applications of these solid electrolyte materials. Conduction domains for a number of known solid electrolytes are deduced from various conductivity and galvanic cell measurements and the results are presented in the form of conduction domain maps in logP sub x sub 2 vs 1T space. The solid electrolyte materials AgBr, AgI, CuBr, CuI, CuCl, CaF2, Zr0.85 Ca0.15 O1.85, and Th0.85 O1.925 are discussed.
