Solid-state electrolytes based on -decaborates have caught increasing interest owing to the impressive room-temperature ionic conductivity, remarkable thermal/chemical stability, and excellent deformability. In order to develop new solid-state ion conductors, we investigated the influence of iodine substitution on the thermal, structural, and ionic conduction properties of -decaborates. A series of iodinated -decaborates, M[BHI] (M = Li, Na; = 1, 2, 10), were synthesized and characterized by thermal analysis, powder X-ray diffraction, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy; the stability and ionic conductivity of these compounds were studied.
