The PVDF homopolymer in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) solution was pretreated with ozone. The peroxides content of the ozone-treated PVDF was determined by assay with 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH). The activated PVDF was then subjected to thermal graft copolymerization with the PEGMA macromonomer in NMP. The microstructures and compositions of the P(PEGMA)-g-PVDF copolymers were characterized by contact angle measurements, FT-IR spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and elemental analyses. Nanoporous membranes were prepared from the P(PEGMA)-g-PVDF copolymer by the phase inversion technique. The morphology of the membranes was studied by scanning electron microscope. The potential applications of the P(PEGMA)-g-PVDF copolymer as the polymer electrolytic membranes for lithium-ion batteries were explored. Measurements of ionic conductivity, Li+ transference number, and electrochemical stability of the membranes were undertaken. © 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.||Source Title:||Reactive and Functional Polymers||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/92407||ISSN:||13815148||DOI:||10.1016/S1381-5148(01)00030-X|
