Abstract:

This article reviews the structure and properties of aqueous-based proton-conducting membranes for fuel cell applications. We will discuss (1) structure of and phase separation in the membranes, (2) principles of proton mobility in hydrogen-bonded aqueous networks, (3) proton conductance through the percolating aqueous phase inside the membrane, and (4) the effects determining membrane performance in a fuel cell.
