Solid-state galvanic cells based on charge-transfer complexes have been extensively used. However, the low mechanical strengths of these materials have restricted their applications. To overcome this problem, the polymer composite of these materials have been prepared and used in fabrication of solid-state batteries. The pressed pellet of these materials has been used as cathode in contact with zinc as anode metal. The electrochemical characterization of these cells such as open-circuit voltages, short-circuit currents, their time and temperature dependence and rechargeability of these cells have been studied. The impedance analyses have been done to understand the nature of the electrode reaction.
