Fourier Transform infrared (FT-IR) and Raman (FT-Raman) spectroscopies and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) were used to investigate ionic association, hydrogen bonding and morphology in a family of sol-gel derived lithium triflate (LiCF3SO3)-doped di-urethane cross-linked poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL(530))/siloxane hybrid electrolytes. The materials studied, with compositions infinity > n >= 0.5 (where n - composition - expresses the molar ratio of PCL(530) ester repeat units per Li+ ion), are non-porous and homogeneous. The Li+ ions interact with the urethane and ester carbonyl oxygen atoms within the whole range of salt concentration analyzed, promoting the formation of hydrogen-bonded aggregates. The composition dependence of the relative concentration of "free" anions and coordinated anions (weakly coordinated anions, Li+CF3SO3- ion pairs or [Li(CF3SO3)(2)](-) triplets, aggregates I ([Li-2(CF3SO3)](+)) and aggregates II ([Li-3(CF3SO3)](+)) in all the samples is in perfect agreement with the values of the room temperature ionic conductivity reported previously.
