Computational modelling studies of the structure of perfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) ionomer membranes consistently exhibit a nanoscopic phase-separated morphology in which the ionic side chains and aqueous counterions segregate from the fluorocarbon backbone to form clusters or channels. Although these investigations do not unambiguously predict the size or shape of the clusters, and whether or not the channels percolate the matrix or if the connections between them are more transient, the… CONTINUE READING
