High Hydroxide Conductivity in Polymerized Ionic Liquid Block Copolymers Academic Article uri icon


  • Herein, we report a polymerized ionic liquid diblock copolymer with high hydroxide conductivity and nanoscale morphology. Surprisingly, the conductivity is not only higher (over an order of magnitude) than its random copolymer analog at the same ion and water content, but also higher than its homopolymer analog, which has a higher ion and water content than the block copolymer. These results should have a significant impact on low-cost (platinum-free), long-lasting, solid-state alkaline fuel cells. 2013 American Chemical Society.
