A Review of Fluorinated Proton Exchange Membrane


Article Preview

The proton exchange membrane (PEM) plays a key role on performance of PEM fuel cell. This paper reviewed recent developments of perfluorinated and partially fluorinated PEMs for PEM fuel cells.Comparative analysis of various PEM parameters was presented. Perfluorinated sulfonic PEMs with better technology have the issues of complicated preparation process and high cost.Partially fluorinated PEMs have lower price,but performance is not good enough.
