Polymer electrolytes based on alkali metal complexes of polyethers and cross-linked polyethers have significant cation mobility, which appears to arise from large-amplitude motions of the polymer. High chain flexibility not only promotes ion transport but it also is important for the initial formation of polymer-salt complexes. Several new polymer electrolyte systems are discussed which contain flexible polymer backbones and high concentrations of polar groups.
