Water Soluble Polymers as Proton Exchange Membranes for Fuel Cells

  title={Water Soluble Polymers as Proton Exchange Membranes for Fuel Cells},
  author={Yun-Sheng Ye and John Frank Rick and B. Chester Hwang},
The relentless increase in the demand for useable power from energy-hungry economies continues to drive energy-material related research. Fuel cells, as a future potential power source that provide clean-at-the-point-of-use power offer many advantages such as high efficiency, high energy density, quiet operation, and environmental friendliness. Critical to the operation of the fuel cell is the proton exchange membrane (polymer electrolyte membrane) responsible for internal proton transport from… CONTINUE READING
