Phosphoric acid loaded quaternary 1,4-diazabicyclo-[2.2.2]-octane (DABCO) polysulfone was synthesised with different degrees of substitution (DS) and the membranes were characterized. The polymer structure was investigated using NMR and FT-IR spectra. The effect of DS on ionic conductivity and fuel cell performance are described. Conductivities of 0.12 and 0.064 S cm(-1) were achieved for the high degree of substitution membrane (05106) and low degree of substitution membrane (DS58), respectively. Fuel cell tests gave a high power output of 400 mW cm(-2) using H-2 and O-2 at 150 degrees C and atmospheric pressure. Therefore, PA/QDPSU membrane has potential applications for intermediate temperature fuel cells (ITFCs). Copyright (C) 2011, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
