Abstract:
Novel proton-exchange membranes, based on a crystalline metal-organic framework (MOF), that operate efficiently at temperatures above 150oC. These membranes are highly ordered, with dopable pores, allowing for designable structures when integrated into polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell technologies.
