Highly water-dispersible, mixed ionic–electronic conducting, polymer acid-doped polyanilines as ionomers for direct methanolfuel cells

Abstract

Highly water-dispersible polymer acid-doped polyanilines have been synthesized and evaluated as an alternative for expensive Nafion ionomers in the anode of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC). These polymers as ionomers lead to higher performance in single cell DMFC compared to Nafion ionomers due to mixed ionic–electronic conduction, water dispersibility, and co-catalytic activity.
