Plasticized polymer electrolytes in this study are consist of biodegradable polycaprolactone (PCL) as a host, ethylene carbonate (EC) as a plasticizer, lithium triflate (LiSO3CF3) as salt and nanocomposite silicon dioxide (SiO2) as filler. Solution cast technique is used in the preparation of the plasticized polymer electrolytes. The electrical properties of the plasticized polymer electrolytes with different composition of lithium salt, plasticizer and nano-sized filler are reported in this paper. Conductivity as high as 4.30 x 10(-3) S cm(-1) is obtained in ambient temperature. Ionic conductivity of the plasticized polymer electrolytes are measured using electrochemistry impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The structural and complex formations are studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The ionic conductivity result can be further verified and supported by XRD and FTIR reading in which the ionic conductivity is directly proportional to the amorphous phase behaviour of the sample.
