Abstract

Magnesium ion-conducting biodegradable solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) films of magnesium perchlorate [Mg(ClO4)2] doped Chitosan [CS] were prepared using the solution casting technique at room temperature. XRD study shows that amorphous nature of the polymer matrix increases upon doping. FTIR deconvolution confirm the complexation generated between the salt and the polymer. The current–voltage measurement exhibited electrochemical stability window for all samples above 2.14 V. The ionic transference number for the highest conducting sample was 0.99. The impedance analysis was done for each SPE film, and the sample with the highest concentration (40 wt%) exhibited the highest conductivity, 5.7 × 10-4 Scm−1. The prepared primary magnesium battery using the highest conducting SPE showed open circuit potential of 2.112 V. Due to its exceptional qualities, this prepared electrolyte may be a strong contender for energy storage systems.
