Thermodynamics of Salt-Doped Block Copolymers


We provide a perspective on the thermodynamics of salt-doped block copolymer electrolytes consisting of ion-conducting and inert blocks, taking poly(ethylene oxide)-b-polystyrene and lithium salts as an example. We focus on the origin for enhanced immiscibility between the constituent blocks upon addition of lithium salts and discuss issues from selected experiments and from our recent self-consistent field study.
