In this present work, solid biopolymer electrolytes (SBEs) system consists of the blended polymer namely carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) doped ammonium chloride (NH4Cl) at different composition from 0 to 10 wt. % were successfully prepared by using casting technique. The electrical conductivity of solid biopolymer electrolytes (SBEs) system was investigated by using Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). Electrical study shows the highest ionic conductivity in room temperature (303 K) was achieved at 8.86 × 10−5 Scm−1 for sample containing 6 wt. % of NH4Cl. The present system shown unexpected drop after different amount of NH4Cl (1-5 wt. %) were added into the CMC/PVA and its might attributed to the factor of composition of dopant. All SBEs systems were found to be obeys Arrhenius behaviour where the plots show close to unity (R2∼1) and thermally activated.
