Abstract: We investigated the effects of two metal salts, lithium trifluoromethanesulfonate (LiCF_3SO_3) and lithium bromide (LiBr), on the glass transition temperature (Tg) of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). Both LiCF_3SO_3 and LiBr greatly enhanced the T_g of PMMA under dry conditions. However, once the sample films were exposed to humidity, the PMMA containing LiCF_3SO_3 absorbed a large amount of water, which acts as a plasticizer. As a result, the T_g shifted to a lower temperature, which limits the utility of this polymer in industrial applications. In contrast, the T_g of PMMA containing LiBr was minimally affected by the absorption of water. This phenomenon can be explained by the ion–dipole interactions with the small number of dissociated lithium cations.
