Abstract : Fast ion conduction has been demonstrated in certain polymer materials doped with an alkali metal salt. Recently divalent salts have also been used in the preparation of ionically conducting polymers. Certain complexes were found to be anion conductors while others were cation conductors. It is therefore of interest to study the reasons for the apparent difference. Alternating current measurements are currently being evaluated on a number of polymer divalent salt complexes. Electrochemical cells are being constructed with appropriate cathodes to assess the feasibility of these polymer electrolytes in rechargeable batteries. Keywords: Divalent conductors, Impedance, cells, Polymer elecrolytes, Magnesium, Lead electrolytes, Vanadium.
