In this study, glassy PVA/lithium systems have been shown to display significant ionic conductivity at room temperature in contrast to traditional polyether based polymer electrolytes. The ionic motion governing the conductivity appears to be decoupled from the main chain polymer motions. Lithium ion mobility has been confirmed through solid state NMR linewidth measurements.
