Abstract

Lithium ion batteries are widely used in portable electronics. The electrolyte in commercial Li ion batteries is an organic liquid with dissolved Li salt. Polymer electrolytes offer several advantages and have been investigated for over 30 years. This chapter introduces the polymer electrolyte, outines the factors which influence ionic conductivity, discusses novel material choices, and overviews characterization techniques.
