Abstract : The novel Gum Arabic-Ammonium Thiocyanate-based solid polymer electrolyte was synthesized using the solvent casting technique, which involved mixing Gum Arabic (GA) with ammonium thiocyanate (NH4SCN) in the presence of water. The different concentrations of NH4SCN admixture with the GA synthesized have been characterized by X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR), dielectric, and ionic conductivity studies. The structural behavior (amorphous or semi crystalline, vibrational shifts), dielectric constant & dielectric loss behavior, relaxation time, and ionic conductivity response of various NH4SCN concentrations admixture on the GA have shown significant variation and the results are presented in detail. To make the batteries have a better ionic conductivity, the synthesized GA-NH4SCN sample, two cathode materials (MnO2(Cell I) and PbO2 + V2O5(Cell II)), and one anode material (Zn/ZnSO4·7H2O) have been taken for examining the open circuit voltage and discharge characteristics at different resistances as a function of time, and their results were discussed in detail.
