    The synthetic polymers are nonbiodegradable that impact petroleum resources; hence, it is detrimental to the environment. In terms of biodegradability, the synthetic polymers as a polymer host in the study of energy storage devices have been utilized over the last decades.Thereby, less plastic waste pollutants will release into the environment.The natural polymers and biopolymers are used interchangeably, are typically characterized by costeectiveness, high compatibility with solvents, high capability in lmforming, and natural abundance. For example, starch, cellulose, and carrageenan are most commonly used as polymer hosts. Another common biopolymer that is extensively under intensive investigation in energy storage devices is chitosan. This biopolymer enriches in various oxygencontaining functional groups based on chemical structure.The problem of low conductivity in chitosan is solved by salt incorporation, where the mechanism of conduction is signicantly aected.The ions from the incorporated salts are in sucient contact with functional groups within the polymer body that provide dative bond. Recently, it has been shown that the addition of glycerol accompanying specic lithium salt into chitosanbased polymer electrolyte improves conductivity.Then, a various weight percentage ratio of glycerol was added to the polymersalt mixture, with stirring continuously until a clear solution was purchase Stavudine gained.The electrode polarization was carried out by holding potential at. V, and the DC current was recorded as a function of time at room temperature.The thickness of the electrodes varied to obtain an optimum of m.From this analysis, one can examine the nature and ionic movement of polymerplasticizer interactions. To tackle dielectric properties, there are several parameters, such as relative permittivity, loss tangent, dielectric constant, microwave reection coecient, split post dielectric resonance technique, and terahertz material. The dielectric constant or complex permittivity is dened by the following mathematical relation: where is the real dielectric constant, and is the imaginary dielectric loss, which essentially species the energy loss and storage in every cycle of the applied power supply. Figures and show the real and imaginary part of dielectric constant as a function of frequency at room temperature.It is observable that the value of rises very sharply for the high amount of glycerol plasticizer at the lowfrequency region as a result of the inuence of space charge and electrode polarization. At the electrodeelectrolyte interfacial region, a high concentration of charge carriers accumulated because of the increase in the polarization in the low frequency. At the higher frequency regions, it is clearly seen that there is no possibility of excess ion dispersion to align with the direction of the eld as the consequence of the periodic reversal of the electric eld takes place rapidly.Regarding both dielectric constant and dielectric loss, there is a decrease in the values due to the polarity declination. Dielectric constant versus log for all polymer blend electrolytes.The value of dielectric constant increases with the increasing salt concentration and there is a substantial increase in the number of charge carriers and thus a rise in DC conductivity. The EIS responses of polymer electrolytes commonly consist of a semicircle and a spike at high and lowfrequency regions, respectively.
