Ion transport in hydroxide conducting block copolymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydroxide ion conducting block copolymers have the potential to possess the multiple properties required for anion exchange membranes to enable long-lasting alkaline fuel cell performance, and therefore can accelerate the advancement of the alkaline fuel cell, a low-cost alternative to the well-adopted commercial proton exchange membrane fuel cell. In this paper, an overview of hydroxide ion transport (a property that is proportional to fuel cell performance) in block copolymers will be presented and the subsequent impact of block copolymer morphology on ion transport (conductivity), where the careful design of block copolymer chemistry and chain architecture can accelerate hydroxide ion transport.
