Abstract

In this study, ENR-50 (epoxidised natural rubber) containing different concentrations of lithium triflate (LiCF3SO3) salt concentrations were prepared using a solution cast technique. Impedance spectroscopy (IS) technique was carried out to determine the electrical conductivity value samples. The highest value of electrical conductivity for the optimum percentage salt of the sample was determined. The highest conductivity was 1.98 x 10-5 S crn-1 for 1.0 g ENR-50 + 35 wt% LiCF3S03. This conductivity was calculated using the bulk resistance value which can be obtained from the complex impedance plot in frequency range between 100 Hz and 1 MHz. Plasticizers such as propylene carbonate (PC) and ethylene carbonate (EC) with LiCF3SO3 different weight percent has been added to ENR-50 + LiCF3SO3 film. The role of plasticizer is to increase the rate of ion dissociation, hence the conductivity of the sample increased. The conductivity of the highest conducting sample of plasticized ENR-50 + 35 wt%, was 2.28 x 10-4 S cm-1. Finally, lithium-air cell using gelled polymer electrolytes was fabricated and characterized. The lithium-air showed a large capacity of 1134 mAhg-1 at discharge current of 1.0 raA.
