ABSTRACT. Solid polymer electrolyte films based on Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) complexed with different concentrations of Lithium Nitrate(LiNO3) salt using solvent cast technique is prepared. The polymer salt complex formations are confirmed by FTIR studies. The surface morphology of polymer electrolyte is studied by XRD analysis. It provides that the electrolytes are more amorphous in nature and CdO acts as plasticizers. The composite polymer electrolytes show good thermal property which are confirmed by DSC. This analysis provides information on the glass transition temperature of polymer electrolytes.

Keywords: PVC, LiNO3, CdO, XRD, FTIR.
