Abstract

Perfluorosulfonate ionomers (PFSI’s) are of great importance in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) applications. In order to optimize membrane performance, it is essential to understand the development of morphology and the structure-property relationships in these materials. Since the influence of the electrostatic interactions in these ion-containing polymers governs the developing structure, the overall goal of these studies has aimed to expand our fundamental understanding of the influence of electrostatic interactions on chain dynamics and developing morphology in PFSI materials.
