The synthesis of network single ion conductors to obtain single ion conductors with high ambient temperature conductivity and mechanical strength is discussed. The single ion conductors were based on comb-branched polyepoxide ethers and lithium (Li) bis(allylmelonato)borate. The single ion conductors possessed good mechanical strength due to the formation of network structure and the Li/Li symmetric cell cycling showed no concentration polymerization. The results show that the backbone structure of the polyepoxides contributes to the total ionic conductivity and it increases with the increasing side chain length.
