The aim of this project is to synthetize and characterize anion exchange membranes ( AEMs ) for organic redox flow batteries. The required characteristics of such membranes are good chemical stability, excellent mechanical properties and high conductivity. The structure of the membrane is based on a partially fluorinated poly(arylene ether sulfone) multiblock copolymers bearing cationic side chains.
The ionic conductivity and mechanical properties will be optimized by changing the structure of the side chains. The morphology (characterization of phase separation), the electrochemical, chemical and mechanical properties of the membranes will be deeply investigated. In order to improve the mechanical properties (if needed), crosslinked membranes or composite membranes will be performed and studied. The more relevant membranes will be fully characterized in redox flow cells together with Fraunhofer ICT (Germany).
