Segmental dynamics vs. ionic conduction in ionomers
What is it about?
Ionic liquid is a class of emerging electrolyte which has electrical properties superior to that of most traditional electrolytes. In solid state electrolytes, ions of ionic liquid transport through the ionomer matrix leading to the ionic conduction. In this study we investigate how the segmental motion and morphology of the ionomer matrix affects the ion transport over a wide range of ionic liquid swollen levels.
Why is it important?
The results show that despite the high ionic liquid swollen level, the segmental motion still play one of the major roles for the ionic conduction. This finding could lead to a better design of high performance solid state electrolytes.
