We present the electrical characterization of a zeolitelike oxo-vanadium arsenate framework. The experimentally obtained electronic and ionic conductivities and their interactions are discussed. Further, we investigate the potential use of electrically conducting zeolitelike materials in electrical energy storage applications, in light of the material’s structural and electronic characteristics.
