Microphase Separated Cation Conducting Polymers : Design, Synthesis, and Properties
Abstract: This thesis describes the synthesis and properties of five different cation conducting polymer systems. These systems were designed so that the polymers would be able to microphase separate into distinct phases with one phase for mechanical strength and one for ionic conductivity. Three studies focused on lithium ion conducting polymers for batteries and two on proton exchange membranes for fuel cells are included in the thesis.
