The role of atomic level simulation in the development of batteries was studied. The application of molecular dynamics of polymer electrolytes based on polythylene oxide was also discussed. The purpose of the study was to understand the mechanism of lithium transport in polyethylene oxide and the ionic conductivity of the electrolyte for practical lithium polymer batteries.
