Abstract
Not Available Solid-state rechargeable batteries offer potentially greater energy density and reliability than their liquid electrolyte counterparts. Unfortunately, there still is no solid electrolyte that can effectively compete with liquid electrolytes in this technology sector. The proposed research effort will involve computer-assisted evaluation of new polymers in polymer/salt complex electrolytes which will hasten the selection of candidate materials for synthesis. Select materials will than be synthesized and characterized electrochemically to determine which are most likely to yield the desired electrochemical properties. Success in the Phase I effort will lead to the development of a solid polymer electrolyte that is equal to liquid electrolytes and will mean a whole new era for lithium batteries in the consumer market. This will occur because a competitive solid polymer electrolyte will put an end to safety problems encountered with lithium batteries
