Micromechanical analysis of ionic clustering in Na®on per ̄uorinated membrane

Abstract

The cluster morphology in a water-swollen Na®on per ̄uorinated membrane is studied using a micromechanics approach. The cluster size is determined from the minimization of the free energy as a function of the equivalent weight of Na®on, the volume fraction of water, and the temperature, taking into account the electrostatic dipole interaction energy, the… (More)
