Abstract : Chloride ion conductivity in anhydrous, plasticized, quaternary ammonium polymer solid electrolytes is studied. Curved plots of 1n(sigma T) vs. 1/T indicate that transport of ions in these materials may be described by WLF-type equations. AC complex impedance measurements for the ranges 5 Hz-500 kHz and 26-98 C with ion-blocking Pt electrodes and ion-reversible calomel electrodes show that the chloride ion is mobile. Conductivities measured range from 7 x .001 to 3 x 10 to the minus 4th power/ohms/cm depending on the plasticizer level and temperature.
