The effects of polymer chains on Li + ionic transport were investigated using NMR, AC impedance in polymer-montmorillonite composites synthesized by melt intercalation of polymer in lithium-exchanged montmorillonite. The results show that the intercalation of polymer(PEO) in montmorillonite increases the random arrangement of polymer chains Which is beneficial to the mobility of interlayer Li + ions. PMMA intercalation and modification of PEO with PMMA bring about more random arrangement of polymer chains which are more beneficial to Li + ionic transport. The ionic conductivity of composites is about 10-3 S•cm-1 at room temperature and there is good temperature stability of electrical properties.
