Abstract

Dopant induced modifcations in the microstructure of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (NaCMC) were characterized by FTIR, XRD, DSC and EIS techniques. FTIR analysis exhibited a considerable microstructural modifcation in NaCMC upon NaClO4⋅H2O doping invoked through complex formation via Lewis acid-base interaction and hydrogen bond for�mation between ions and dipoles. This resulted in the modifcation in the orderliness/disorderliness of polymer chains as observed from XRD deconvolution. At higher salt concentrations, the complexity of the network causes the formation of new amorphous and crystalline phases as refected in the XRD studies. DSC analysis showed an increase in Tg as the salt concentration increased, indicating a reduction in polymer chains fexibility. The contribution of free ions has masked over the enhancement in amorphous content to conductivity at a lower concentration of salt in the matrix, later on, the formation of a new crystalline phase due to transient crosslinks by Na+…ClO4 −…Na+ has afected the ion transport process.
