Abstract

This study is concerned with electrochemical investigation of novel high-performance proton exchange membranes based on bio-functionalized montmorillonite and Nafion®. It was found that the incorporation of 2 wt% BMMT into Nafion® polyelectrolyte matrix results in significantly improved methanol–air fuel cell efficiency of 30% compared to 14% for Nafion®117, and about 23-times higher membrane selectivity.
