  • Effect of ceramic fillers on polyethylene glycol-based solid polymer
           electrolytes for solid-state magnesium batteries
    • Authors: Polu, A. R; Kumar, R, Rhee, H. W.
      Pages: 628 - 631
      Abstract: Composite polymer electrolyte (CPE) materials are very attractive for components of batteries and optoelectronic devices. Polyethylene glycol–magnesium nitrate polymer electrolytes and their composites were prepared by using addition of different weight percentage of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and cerium oxide ceramic fillers. Several experimental techniques, such as composition-dependence conductivity, temperature-dependence conductivity, and transport number measurements, have been employed to characterize these CPEs. The magnitude of conductivity increased with increase in the concentration of the ceramic fillers and temperature. The highest ionic conductivity achieved was 1.06 x 10–4 S/cm for the sample prepared with 10 wt% of TiO2 at room temperature. The charge transport in the present CPEs was obtained using Wagner’s polarization technique, which demonstrated that the charge transport was mainly due to ions. Using these polymer electrolytes, solid-state electrochemical cells were fabricated and their discharge profiles were studied under a constant load of 100 k.

  • Investigation of ionic liquid-based poly(vinyl alcohol) proton conductor
           for electrochemical double-layer capacitor
    • Authors: Liew, C.-W; Ramesh, S, Arof, A. K.
      Pages: 632 - 636
      Abstract: Ionic liquid-based poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) proton-conducting polymer electrolytes are prepared using solution casting technique. The effect of adding 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide (BmImI) ionic liquid into PVA-ammonium acetate polymer system is investigated in this work. Ionic conductivity of polymer electrolytes is increased by two orders of magnitude upon inclusion of 70 wt% of BmImI. Addition of ionic liquid reduces the glass transition temperature and crystallinity of polymer electrolytes. Electrical double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) are assembled using dip-coating technique. The electrochemical properties of fabricated EDLCs are analysed using cyclic voltammetry.

  • Poly({varepsilon}-caprolactone)-based polymer electrolyte for electrical
           double-layer capacitors
    • Authors: Woo, H. J; Liew, C.-W, Majid, S. R, Arof, A. K.
      Pages: 637 - 640
      Abstract: The potential of electrical double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) fabricated from symmetry activated carbon electrodes and poly(-caprolactone) (PCL)-based polymer electrolytes (PE) have been studied. PEs that consisted of PCL, ammonium thiocyanate, and ethylene carbonate (EC) were prepared by solution casting. In this system, EC was added as a plasticizing solvent to improve the conductivity. The room temperature ionic conductivity of PE increased from 3.94 x 10–7 S cm–1 to 3.8 x 10–5 S cm–1 at 50 wt% EC. In the structural studies carried out by X-ray diffraction, it was found that addition of EC reduces the degree of crystallinity of the entire system. Temperature-dependent conductivity studies showed that Vogel–Tamman–Fulcher model fits very well with regression value close to unity. This observation demonstrates a close coupling between the ionic motion and the polymer segment mobility. The preliminary result of EDLC cell was evaluated by cyclic voltammetry. The single-electrode specific capacitance of EDLC is obtained to be 42.4 F g–1.

  • Electropolymerization of polyaniline thin films
    • Authors: Rohom, A. B; Londhe, P. U, Mahapatra, S. K, Kulkarni, S. K, Chaure, N. B.
      Pages: 641 - 646
      Abstract: Polyaniline (PANI) thin films have been electrochemically synthesized onto conducting glass substrates. The current study demonstrates that the properties of PANI films depend on the concentration of dopant acid. Well-adherent PANI coatings were obtained under potentiodynamic conditions during sequential scanning of the potential region between –0.35 V and +1.7 V with respect to silver/silver chloride. The structural, optical, and morphological properties of PANI films were studied with the aid of X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, ultraviolet–visible (UV-Vis) absorption spectroscopy, photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, and field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). Current–voltage (I-V) measurements were performed to study the electrical properties of PANI films. The XRD peaks observed at 2 = 15.4°, 24.2°, and 25.1° confirm the synthesis of emeraldine form of PANI. The strong absorption peaks observed in the UV-Vis absorption spectra at 317 nm (–* interband transition), 371–427 nm (polaron band transition), and 750 nm (bipolaron band transition) confirm the formation of emeraldine oxidation state of PANI. A broad peak attributed in the PL spectra around 395 nm is related to the transition from polaronic band to the band. All the intense bands attributed in the Raman spectra are associated with the emeraldine oxidation state of PANI. FESEM images reveal the formation of fibers and belts of PANI. Highly conducting thin films of PANI deposited at higher concentrations of dopant acid were confirmed by I-V measurements.

  • Chlorophyll as sensitizer in I-/I3 --based solar cells with
           quasi-solid-state electrolytes
    • Authors: Hassan, H. C; Abidin, Z. H. Z, Careem, M. A, Arof, A. K.
      Pages: 647 - 652
      Abstract: The performance of chlorophyll dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) with quasi-solid-state polyacrylonitrile (PAN)-based iodide electrolytes has been investigated. The iodide ion-supplying salt used is tetrapropylammonium iodide (TPAI). Chlorophyll is extracted from a species of the moss bryophyte that can be found on rocky surfaces. The DSSC with electrolyte having the composition 9.9 wt% PAN–39 wt% ethylene carbonate–39.7 wt% propylene carbonate–9.9 wt% TPAI–0.8 wt.% iodine produces the highest efficiency of ( ) 1.97% with a short-circuit current density (J sc) of 5.78 mA cm–2, open circuit voltage (V oc) of 0.60 V, and fill factor (FF) of 0.57. The incident photon-to-current efficiency curves follow the current density–voltage characteristics with the DSSC using the above electrolyte exhibiting the highest power conversion at 339 nm. The sensitizer and gel polymer electrolyte play an important role in determining the performance of the DSSC.

  • Synthesis and characterizations of waterborne poly(acrylate) latexes
    • Authors: Shukla, S; Rai, J. S. P.
      Pages: 653 - 659
      Abstract: Aqueous emulsions used as binders in solvent-free paint formulations have to cope with the challenge to guarantee an excellent film formation and appearance as well as good properties. One strategy to fulfill these contradictory requirements is the employment of pure poly(acrylate) resins synthesized by emulsion polymerization. Kinetic studies involving free radical emulsion polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA)-co-n-butyl acrylate (BA) are carried out, so that the effect of BA on polymerization of MMA can be interpreted. In this study, the effect of emulsifier and initiator on the kinetics of polymerization was studied. The polymers were characterized using different analytical tools. The surface tension and contact angle of latexes were also measured by varying the concentration of monomer feed ratios. The results indicated that the incorporation of comonomer enhances the properties of coating formulation of polyacrylates.

  • Studies on facile synthesis of polyaniline/cadmium sulfide composites and
           their morphology

      Pages: 660 - 665
      Abstract: A composite of polyaniline (PANI) and cadmium sulfide (CdS) has been prepared via chemical bath deposition with crystalline structures which is confirmed from the X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies. Scanning electron microscopic studies and XRD have shown that the morphology and crystallinity of the materials in the composite have apparently changed after the formation of composite. The transmission electron microscopic study has revealed that there is an increase in the crystallite size of CdS and its impregnation into the granular pillar-like structure of PANI. The absorption edge of the composite red shifted as compared to that of CdS and blue shifted with respect to that of PANI. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic studies show a clear shifting of wave numbers indicating the interaction between CdS and PANI due to the strengthening of the C=C bond in PANI.

  • Selective localization of lithium trifluoromethanesulfonate in the blend
           of hexanoyl chitosan and polystyrene
    • Authors: Winie, T; Shahril, N. S. M, Chan, C. H, Arof, A. K.
      Pages: 666 - 671
      Abstract: The miscibility of hexanoyl chitosan and polystyrene blend at 80:20 composition was investigated using dilute solution viscometry (DSV) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods. Viscometric and thermal analysis showed that hexanoyl chitosan and polystyrene are immiscible. Polymer electrolytes based on hexanoyl chitosan and polystyrene blend (80:20) were prepared using lithium trifluoromethanesulfonate (LiCF3SO3) as the doping salt. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) study on polystyrene-LiCF3SO3 suggested that there is no interaction between polystyrene and LiCF3SO3. LiCF3SO3 interacted with hexanoyl chitosan to form Li+-hexanoyl chitosan complexes. DSC results revealed that the glass transition temperature (T g) of hexanoyl chitosan in the blend increases with increasing salt concentration, whereas the T g of polystyrene in the blend remains constant. FTIR and DSC results thus suggested the selective localization of LiCF3SO3 in hexanoyl chitosan phase in the blend. The dependence of conductivity with salt concentration is found to be in agreement with the variation of the spectroscopically free form of $${\mathrm{C}\mathrm{F}}_{3}{\mathrm{S}\mathrm{O}}_{3}^{-}$$ .

  • Studies on a proton battery using gel polymer electrolyte
    • Authors: Mishra, K; Hashmi, S. A, Rai, D. K.
      Pages: 672 - 676
      Abstract: A proton-conducting film of gel polymer electrolyte, poly(vinylidene fluoride hexafluoropropylene)/poly(methyl methacrylate) + ammonium thiocyanate + ethylene carbonate + propylene carbonate, has been prepared by solution casting technique. The ionic conductivity of the film is in the order of approximately 10–3 S cm– 1 at room temperature. A proton battery with the configuration zinc + zinc sulfate heptahydrate gel electrolyte lead oxide + vanadium pentoxide has been fabricated using this film as electrolyte and separator between the electrodes. The battery shows an open circuit voltage of 1.45 V and energy density of approximately 10 Wh kg–1at low current drain. The rechargeability of the battery has been observed up to three cycles after which its discharge capacity starts fading.

  • Structural, thermal, electrical, and dielectric properties of synthesized
           nanocomposite solid polymer electrolytes
    • Authors: Kulshrestha, N; Chatterjee, B, Gupta, P. N.
      Pages: 677 - 688
      Abstract: In the present article, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) polymer, sodium iodide (NaI) salt, and fumed silica nanoparticles nanofiller have been used for the preparation of solid polymer electrolyte films. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy has been performed to study the vibrational change due to the complexation among polymer, salt, and nanofiller. X-Ray diffraction has been carried out to study the structural changes in the PVA:NaI (60:40) polymer electrolyte films with fumed silica nanoparticles as dopant. Differential scanning calorimetry studies show decreasing trend in the glass transition temperature for nanocomposite polymer electrolyte films. Thermogravimetric analysis has been performed to study the thermal degradation of the sample. Determination of transference number using Wagner’s polarization technique indicates that the ions are the dominant mobile species. Maximum conductivity of approximately 3.8 x 10–3 S cm–1 at room temperature has been estimated for PVA:NaI (60:40) film containing 0.5% fumed silica nanoparticles with low value of activation energy. Dielectric relaxation studies with temperature show shifts of the relaxation time toward higher value for samples of nanocomposite polymer electrolyte films.
