Placement of amidoxime functionalities within the pores of microporous polymer membranes yields a new family of selective membranes for aqueous electrochemical cells—which we call AquaPIMs. At high pH, where amidoximes are ionized, AquaPIM membranes feature concomitantly high conductivity and transport selectivity when compared to other membranes, including Nafion. Design rules are laid out, tying membrane architecture and pore chemistry to membrane stability, conductivity, and transport selectivity in aqueous electrolytes over a broad range of pH.

Abstract

Placement of amidoxime functionalities within the pores of microporous polymer membranes yields a new family of selective membranes for aqueous electrochemical cells—which we call AquaPIMs. At high pH, where amidoximes are ionized, AquaPIM membranes feature concomitantly high conductivity and transport selectivity when compared to other membranes, including Nafion. Design rules are laid out, tying membrane architecture and pore chemistry to membrane stability, conductivity, and transport selectivity in aqueous electrolytes over a broad range of pH. These attributes dictate whether it is possible to operate aqueous electrochemical cells without the influence of active-material crossover.
