Abstract

A non-aqueous ionic liquid based on imidazole was prepared and showed high proton conductivity. Its incorporation into the plastic crystal phase of succinonitrile at low molar proportions resulted in a solid material with high conductivity throughout the plastic crystal range and of particular interest at 25°C (1.5×10-3 S/cm). The addition of a compatible polymer have resulted in a remarkable increase in the mechanical properties but diminished the conductivity by a one-and-a half order of magnitude.
