A review of the transport properties of available and emerging materials that have the potential to be used as electrolytes for fuel cells. Strategies for the development of new materials with transport properties approaching those of an "ideal separator", esp. in the intermediate temp. range, are also discussed. Presently, Nafion materials, or its modified derivs. are still the benchmark PEMs, despite more than twenty years of research into alternatives.
