Polymer electrolytes (PEs) are macromolecular systems capable of transporting charged species such as ions or protons. The main application of PEs is in energy conversion and storage devices such as batteries and fuel cells. The chapter overviews the synthesis, structure, physical and electrical properties of three classes of hybrid inorganic–organic PEs: three-dimensional hybrid inorganic–organic networks as polymer electrolytes (3D-HION-APE), zeolitic inorganic–organic polymer electrolytes (Z-IOPEs) and hybrid gel electrolytes (HGEs). The basic structure of the ...
