Introduction Composites based on polymers filled with natural fibers, also called ecocomposites [ 1 ], have attracted the even growing attention from both scientific and industrial point of view [ 2 – 5 ]. Among several classes

Introduction The composites with natural lignocellulosic materials like natural fibres, shivers, straws and wood have recently been intensively investigated due to favourable mechanical properties of such materials and their

Poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) based-polymeric solid electrolytes are of growing interest for their applications in electrochemical devices. Their major limitations are structural and electrochemical stability, and low cationic transport number. A possible response to these problems is given by composite or nanostructured materials. We present sol-gel synthesis, thermal and electrical characterization of new electrolytes made of a composite glass-polymer matrix doped with LiClO4 and LiBF4. Emphasis to the critical aspects of preparation is given. We obtain a conductivity at room temperature better than 10−5 ohm−1 cm−1, which is high enough to envisage technological applications.
