Conductivities in a number of polymer electrolyte systems have been investigated using divalent cation salts such as Mg(ClO4)2, Ca(ClO4)2, Ni(ClO4)2 and ZnCl2. The polymers used were comb-branched structures with oligo(ethylene oxide) and oligo(propylene oxide) side chains and polyphosphazene networks linked by tetra-aza-macrocyles. The systems using Mg and Ca salts achieved levels as high as 10-3-10-4 S cm-1 but the aza-macrocycles were about two orders of magnitude poorer. © 1992.
