Characterization of statistical co-polymer vinylidene fluoride-hexafluoropropylene-phenylphosphonic acid functionalized hexafluoropropylene for potential applications as a proton electrolyte membrane
Meeting the world’s growing demand for energy without contributing to the emergent problem of anthropogenic climate change requires the use of renewable, carbon-free energy sources which in turn are contingent on advances in materials science. A newly synthesized statistical co-polymer of vinylidene fluoride, hexafluoropropylene and phenylphosphonic acid functionalized hexafluoropropylene (PolyPPA) shows potential for use as a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) in a variety of green-energy applications including proton pumps, flow batteries and high temperature-low relative humidity fuel cells. ...
