Abstract: Abstract Comb‐shaped graft polymers were synthesized and complexed with a LiCF3SO3 salt to form a new class of polymer electrolytes. The polymers based on an acrylonitrile‐butadiene copolymer (NBR) have pendant, short‐chain poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) grafted onto a butadiene unit. The characteristics of these polymer electrolytes were investigated in terms of number of pendant EO groups and grafting degree in the graft copolymer. The maximum conductivity was observed at the optimum side PEO chain length, and …
