Abstract
A new copolymer polyacrylonitrile-co-bis[2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethyl]itaconate (abbreviated as PAM) was synthesized in the hope of getting a polymer host having a better ability of trapping organic solvent to overcome the drawba cks of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) system gel polymer electrolytes. Blend of PA N and PANI was complexed with organic solvents, ethylene carbonate CEC) and gamma\-butyrolactone CBL),. and LiClO4 salt. The highest room temperature conductivity of 1.9 x 10(-3) S cm(-1) was found for a film of 25PAN-10PANI- 50EC/BL- 15LiClO(4), The PANI was found to effectively trap organic solvent s and, therefore, greatly enhance the miscibility of polymer host and solve nts, possibly due to ion chelating ability of itaconate unit. The PAN-PANI blend gel-electrolyte, as compared with pristine PAN-based electrolyte, had better electrochemical stability and was more stable toward lithium electr ode, though it exhibited slightly less mechanical rigidity caused by amorph ization of the PAN matrix.
