solid polymer electrolyte
Electrically conducting solution of a @S05447@ in a polymer.
  1. An example of a solid @P04728@ is a solution of a lithium @S05447@ in a poly(oxyethylene) matrix; the @I03175@ of such material is due to the @M03955@ of lithium cations and their counterions in an electric field.
  2. Although the adjective 'solid' is used, the material may be a liquid.
  3. The term solid @P04728-1@ should not be confused with the term @P04728-2@.
