Polymeric membranes to be used as electrolytic separators in lithium batteries were prepared from Poly Ethylene Oxide (PEO) and Lithium Triflate salt (LiTf) via a solvent-free procedure. Several membranes, having different PEO/LiTf molar ratios, were characterized by Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) to obtain their ionic conductivity. Most of the compositions exhibit an Arrhenius-like behaviour with two different activation energies above and below 60 degrees C. Only the sample having the highest LiTf concentration showed a non-Arrhenius trend. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) study was performed to determine the various phases present in the system. The degree of association of the mobile ions changes vs. composition and temperature was investigated by Raman spectroscopy, a powerful technique which allows to follow these changes in details by studying the spectral parameters of the SO(3) stretching vibration of triflate ions. These data were correlated with the conductivity and thermodynamic data.
