Transmission infrared spectroscopy as a probe of Nafion film structure: analysis of spectral regions fundamental to understanding hydration effects.

Abstract

Transmission infrared spectroscopy was applied to investigate properties of the perfluorosulfonated polymer Nafion. Measurements were made on thin films formed by casting the polymer from solution onto ZnSe windows. Effects of water vapor permeation were studied. A complex band structure between 1350 and 1100 cm(-1) was analyzed qualitatively by fitting the… (More)
