Unraveling the local energetics of transport in a polymer ion conductor

Author affiliations

Abstract

We compare diffusion activation energy measurements in a hydrated perfluorosulfonate ionomer and aqueous solutions of triflic acid. These measurements provide insight into water transport dynamics on sub-nm length scales, and gauge the contribution of the polymer sidechain terminal group. Future membrane materials design will hinge on detailed understanding of transport dynamics.
