Abstract/Description

Poly(ionic liquid)s and the polymers made from them are very useful in many industrial aspects. Phosphonium containing poly(ionic liquid) currently have less extensive research than other PILs such as those containing imidazolium. Phosphonium PILs are typically more thermodynamically stable than other currently used PILs, making them potentially useful in batteries and other systems where thermal stability is needed. In this study, phosphonium containing PILS were incorporated into covalently linked polymer networks using thiol-ene 'click' chemistry. The PILs and the polymers formed from them were characterized by factors such as conductivity, thermal stability, mechanical strength, etc. The polymers with properties most desirable for use in lithium ion batteries were then explored for their potential as binder material.
