The rapid growth of electronic related industries has caused an increasing demand for smaller and lighter batteries with improved safety characteristics, flexible geometry, and high energy density. A novel type of lithium-ion battery where liquid electrolytes are replaced by solid polymer electrolytes seems to have promising application in both portable electronic and hybrid electric vehicles. Recent trends in this area are associated with incorporation of nanofillers such as NAFEN into the polymer hosts (PEO, PPO, PAN, PVC and etc.) to offer new advanced types of nanocomposite electrolytes for lithium battery applications.
