AbstractIt is shown that the conductivity, mechanical properties, and chemical stability of proton-conducting polymer gel electrolytes based on polymethacrylate matrixes can be modified by changing the polymer matrix composition and accordingly the type and concentration of organic solvent used as plasticizer. The use of the glycidyl methacrylate?methyl methacrylate copolymers enhances ionic conductivity, improves mechanical stability and adhesion to the glass substrate compared to the system based on poly(methyl methacrylate) matrixes, and extends chemical stability compared to the system based on pure poly(glycidyl methacrylate). These copolymers also enable the use of N,N-dimethyl formamide?propylene carbonate mixtures as plasticizers, which leads to conductivity enhancement relative to pure propylene carbonate.
