Abstract:Ionomer thin‐films (i.e., 20–100 nm) on supports serve as model systems to understand ionomer‐catalyst interfacial behavior as well as the confinement‐driven deviation in properties from bulk membranes. While ionomer thin‐films have been examined for proton exchange ionomers, the thin‐film properties of anion exchange ionomers (AEIs) remain largely unexplored. More importantly, delineating the convoluted impact of chemistry and confinement on thin‐film morphology and hydration is of interest to advancing the f… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
