The polymer electrolyte PEO:La(ClO4)3 has been prepared and investigated. In addition to crystalline PEO, X-ray and DSC results indicate the existence of a crystalline complex between the salt and polymer. Transference number meaurements indicate that the lanthanum is immobile. The conductivities, though lower than poly(ethylene oxide) based electrolytes containing monovalent cations or Hg2+, are similar to those of other anhydrous divalent cation-based polymer electrolytes. © 1990.
