|Abstract: ||In recent years there is a huge demand of compact, lightweight, affordable, and of high capacity electronic devices. Such devices can be made by using polymer based electrolytes, which convert the chemical energy into electrical energy and have the potential to reduce energy use and dependence on fossil fuels.These polymer electrolytes show high ionic conductivity, strong solvating ability with alkali and alkaline salts and improved thermal, mechanical and electrochemical properties. The films of composite polymer electrolyte can be prepared by mixing alkali or alkaline salt with polymer and plasticizer in a fixed ratio using photo-polymerization, thermal polymerization and by sol-gel technique. The main objective of the proposed work is to prepare a new composite polymer electrolyte in film form using sol-gel technique. After synthesis and optimization of parameters, these polymer electrolyte films will be characterized by using X- Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Fourier Transform Spectroscopy (FTIR), Impedance Analysis, Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) and Cyclic Voltametery (CV).
