Abstract

Chemical modification of natural rubber (NR) has frequently been attempted to improve the performance in specific application. 30% poly (methyl metacrylate) grafted NR (MG 30) has been explored as a potential candidate for polymer electrolytes. The complexation effect of LiCF3SO3 ethylene carbonate (EC) and Al2SiO5 in polymer host electrolytes has been investigated using FTIR JCP-OES spectrometry. Thermal studies of the systems have displayed a stable trend of glass temperature transition at elevated salt concentration whereas incorporation of EC and filler into the system results in the same pattern in their T-g values.
