Abstract: This paper report the synthesis and properties of a series of composite polymer electrolytes formed by dispersion of a
non-ionic organic plastic material SN (succinonitrile) into poly(vinyl alcohol) complexed with magnesium acid salt. SEM (scanning
electron microscope) images of different SN concentrations of films revealed that large open pore structure were also frequently present,
when SN content increase up to 7.5 wt%. The addition of SN greatly enhances ionic conductivities of the electrolytes which is due to
the high polarity and diffusivity of SN. The Mg2+ (magnesium ion) ion conduction is confirmed from impedance spectroscopy and
transport number measurements. The highest conducting sample in the plasticized system was used to fabricate Mg (magnesium)
battery with configuration Mg/SPE/TiO2. The discharge capacity of the fabricated battery was 17.5 mAh/gm.
