Abstract: The study presents preparation of poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) based nanocomposite gel polymer electrolytes consisting of, salt lithium perchlorate (LiClO 4 ), plasticizer PC/DEC and different proportions of SiO 2 nanofiber by solution casting process. The effect of the composition of the electrolytes on their ionic, mechanical and thermal characteristics was investigated. Morphology of the nanocomposite electrolyte films has been observed by scanning and transmission electron microscopes. Interactions among the constituents of the composite and structural changes of the base polymer were investigated by Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques. The maximum conductivity i.e. 10 −3 Scm −1 at room temperature is obtained with the electrolyte composition of 0.6(PMMA)-0.15(PC + DEC)-0.1LiClO 4 (wt%) containing 10 wt% SiO 2 nanofiber and the temperature dependent conductivity data of the electrolyte follows Vogel-Tamman-Fulcher (VTF) behavior. © 2016, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
