Effect of Lithium Salt Content on the Performance of Thermoset Lithium Battery Electrolytes

Series of solid poly(ethylene glycol)-methacrylate electrolytes have successfully been manufactured in a solvent free process with an aim to serve in a multifunctional battery, both as mechanical load carrier as well as lithium ion conductor. The electrolytes have been studied with respect to mechanical and electrical properties. The thermoset series differs with respect to crosslink density and glass transition temperature (Tg). The results show that the conductivity increases, with salt content exhibiting similar trends, although at overall levels that differ if measured above or below the Tg of the system. The Tg transition on the other hand is more affected by the salt content for loosely crosslinked thermosets. The coordination of a lithium salt to the PEG-segments play a more important role for the physical state of the material when there are less restrictions due to crosslinking of the PEG-chains. The overall performance of the electrolyte at different temperatures will thus be more affected.
