Summary Doping of lithium salts and acids into the plastic crystal phase of succinonitrile has shown for the first time of the possibility of creating solid state electrolytes based on plastic crystalline solvents where the matrix itself is neutral and hence not intrinsically conductive. These materials illustrate the concept of a solid state electrolyte solvent. Room temperature conductivities up to 3.4×10−4 S cm−1 were obtained with 5 wt.% lithium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonylamide) in succinonitrile. Pulsed field gradient NMR measurements indicate that both cation and anion are mobile in this lattice. Proton conductivity was also observed when methane sulfonic acid or glacial acetic acid was used as dopants, however, the conductivity in these systems is limited by the poor dissociating ability of these acids.
