In this chapter, we describe crystalline ion-conducting complexes formed by akali metal salts and poly(ethylene oxide). A variety of factors influencing the conductivity of such complexes are presented. Electrochemical testing of these materials in lithium and sodium rechargeable batteries demonstrate that crystalline polymer/salt complexes can be used as electrolytes in all-solid-state energy storage devices.
