A general discussion is presented for the conductivity-viscosity and viscosity-temperature relationships in polymer electrolytes in the context of systematizing the efforts to obtain higher ionic conductivities at ambient temperatures. Topics discussed include: the Walden rule, glass-rubber and rubber-melt transitions, the strength-fragility concept, the Vogel-Fulcher-Tammann and Williams-Landel-Ferry equations, the chelation effect and the decoupling of ionic transport from the structural relaxation processes.
