Abstract

For understanding transport in polymer ionics, the coupling between relaxational motion and transport has been a dominant theme. Experimentally, it has been established that transport occurs in the fully amorphous continuum phase, rather than the crystalline phase. Nevertheless, a local structure surrounds the mobile ions. Meanwhile, a number of theoretical methods have led to increased understanding of the mechanisms and to some mechanism-based designs. Such advances have been effective in increasing the performance capability of polymer electrolytes and have arisen from conceptual ideas based on mechanistic models for transport.
