Comb-shaped polymers to enhance hydroxide transport in anion exchange membranes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Comb-shaped poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PPO) polymers with quaternary ammonium (QA) groups have been synthesized organizing into well-defined micro-morphology for efficient anion (hydroxide) transport. These molecular comb structures show a dramatic enhancement in conductivity and water resistance compared with non-comb-shaped PPOs.
