Vibrational studies and properties of hybrid inorganic-organic proton conducting membranes based on Nafion and hafnium oxide nanoparticles.


In this report, we will describe the effect of different concentrations of HfO2 nanopowders on the structure and properties of [Nafion/(HfO2)n] membranes with n = 0, 3, 5, 9, 11, 13, and 15 wt %, respectively. Films were prepared by a solvent casting procedure using HfO2 oxoclusters and Nafion. Seven new homogeneous membranes were obtained with thicknesses… (More)
