Abstract: Dielectric analysis of ion conducting solid polymer nanocomposite has been investigated as a function of temperature and frequency. Effect of clay concentration in changing the dielectric relaxation behaviour of polymer salt complex film is clearly visible, observed in terms of changes in polymer chain relaxation and dipolar contribution due to ion pairs. An enhancement in relative permittivity by 2 orders of magnitude has been recorded at room temperature in nanocomposite films controlled predominantly by clay concentration. Almost similar behaviour has been observed after crystalline to amorphous phase transition temperature at T ≥70°C for both polymer salt complex and nanocomposite films irrespective of clay concentration. A lowering of relaxation time, attributed to relaxing dipoles, with clay concentration suggests faster ion dynamics in nanocomposite films.
