This report focuses on the development of a lithium-ion conducting channel as a solid-state electrolyte for rechargeable lithium batteries. Dilithium phthalocyanine Li2Pc has been used in this development since it can undergo molecular self-assembly to form the ionically conducting channel. The essential features of the channel are that it is designed such that the anion matrix of the unsaturated macrocycle forms the channel through which the lithium ions move, thus making it a single-ion conductor for lithium ions the ionic transport of lithium depends on the electric field gradient created by the electrodes, thereby minimizing temperature dependence for ionic transport.
