The technique of Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) is shown to be useful in the study of dynamics of solid polymer electrolytes (SPE). Through the ESR of the nitroxide radical (2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-1-piperidine-l-oxyl; TEMPO) dispersed in the SPE PEG46LiClO4 temperature dependence of correlation time is found. The glass transition temperature Tg is estimated to be -51 °C from the measurement of T50G, the temperature at which the extrema separation 2Azz becomes 50G and is found to be close to that measured using DSC (-51.7°C). Tg for pure PEG-2000, which could not be measured from DSC because of its high crystallinity, is determined to be -72 °C by spin probe ESR.
