Abstract

We show that the structure of a polymer electrolyte may be solved by growing single crystals of an oligomeric (short chain) complex which provided an adequate starting model for refinement of the equivalent polymeric structure using powder diffraction: the efficacy of this method has been demonstrated by determining for the first time the structure of an 8 : 1 complex, poly(ethylene oxide)(8) : NaBPh4.
