Synthesis and properties of methacrylate-based ionic networked polymers containing ionic liquids: comparison of ionic and nonionic networked polymers

Ionic networked polymers containing ionic liquids were synthesized by radical copolymerization of 1-(2-methacryloyl)ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (Met-IL) and difunctional or trifunctional methacrylate cross-linkers, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA), or trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate (TMPTMA) in the presence of an ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (EMImTFSI). For comparison, nonionic networked polymers containing the ionic liquid were prepared by radical copolymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) with EGDMA in the presence of EMImTFSI. Met-IL/EGDMA/EMImTFSI(50) showed higher ion conductivity and ionic liquid holding ability than the corresponding MMA/EGDMA/EMImTFSI(50), while Met-IL/TMPTMA/EMImTFSI(50) showed lower ionic conductivity with higher holding ability than MMA/EGDMA/EMImTFSI(50).
