Composite solid electrolytes were synthesized from the organic salt dimethylammonium chloride (1–x)C2H8NCl–xAl2O3. Their physicochemical properties were studied. In the starting C2H8NCl salt, there is a phase transition at 39°C accompanied by an increase in conductivity by two orders of magnitude. The conductivity of the high-temperature phase is 9.3 × 10–6 S/cm at 160°C. A differential scanning calorimetry study showed that the salt in the composites spreads over the oxide surface and at x > 0.6 the salt melting enthalpy decreases to zero. The conductivity of the resulting composites was studied by impedance spectroscopy. It was shown that heterogeneous doping leads to a sharp increase in ion conductivity to 7.0 × 10–3 S/cm at 160°C and a decrease in the activation energy to 0.55 eV.
