Sulfonated poly(ether ether ketone) (SPEEK) membranes were thermally treated at temperatures between 120 and 160 degrees C. Water uptake measured at different relative humidity values or by full immersion in water between 25 and 145 degrees C was found to depend very strongly on previous thermal treatment and casting solvent. Water-uptake coefficient values(More)
The cross-link reaction via sulfone bridges of sulfonated polyether ether ketone (SPEEK) by thermal treatment at 180°C in presence of dimethylsulfoxide is discussed. The modifications of properties subsequent to the cross-linking are presented. The mechanical strength as well as the hydrolytic stability increased with the thermal treatment time, i.e., with(More)
