Abstract:

Some polyN-propylaziridinelithium salt compositions have been synthesized and their electrical conductivities have been measured in order to assess their suitability as electrolytes in safe, leakproof, high energy-density lithium batteries operating at ambient temperature. The effects on conductivity of temperature, and the nature and concentration of the salt have also been studied. The presence of the salts markedly improved the conductivity of the compositions over that of the undoped polymer but they were insufficiently conducting to be considered as battery electrolytes, due possibly to ion-pairing. Their creep resistance was also low. It was concluded that less fluid compositions containing higher molecular weight polymers better able to promote ion separation would be more suitable.
