Physical and electrochemical characterization of nanocomposite membranes of nafion and functionalized silicon oxide

Ladewig, Bradley; Knott, Robert; Hill, Anita; Riches, James; White, John; Martin, Darren James; da Costa, Joao; Lu, Gaoqing Max


Nafion nanocomposite membranes were prepared from Nafion 117 and a systematic range of organically functionalized silicon alkoxide precursors using an in situ sol gel synthesis technique. The physical structure of the resulting nanocomposite membranes were characterized using small and wide-angle X-ray scattering, small angle neutron scattering, positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. A structural model is proposed for three typical nanocomposite...[Show more]
