Abstract

New proton exchange membranes were prepared and evaluated as polymer electrolytes for a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). Two types of fluorinated poly(arylene ether)s (FPAEs) were synthesized by nucleophilic aromatic substitution of decafluorobiphenyl (DFBP) with 4,4′-(hexafluoroisopropylidene)diphenol (HFDP) and bisphenol-A (BPA). The FPAEs so prepared were converted into proton exchange polymers by sulfonation with fuming sulfuric acid (30% SO3). The FPAEs and sulfonated-fluorinated poly(arylene ether)s (S-FPAEs) with various sulfonation levels were characterized using 1H NMR, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and back titration, and then successfully evaluated as proton exchange membranes (PEM) with unit cell operation. power output measurements of S-DFBP-HFDP carried out at a cell temperature of 80°C. They exhibited a maximum power density of 425.5 mW/cm2 at 1150 mA/cm2.
