Abstract : The syntheses and room temperature conductivities of a wide variety of simple and polymeric lithium salts have been explored without finding materials with significant ambient temperature ionic conductivities. Some of the materials may be of interest in other contexts. A study of lithium tetrafluoroborate in polyacrylonitrile showed that the composites could form the basis for a sensitive humidity sensor. Preliminary studies of a number of lithium salt-polymer systems showed that water was responsible for the observed conductivities. Keywords: Lithium ion, Polymer-salt complexes, Solid state, Conductivity, Humidity sensor, Polymers.
