Copyright © 2013 Delta Energy and Environment. The effect of amine and sulfide anion functional group on the conductivity and performance of alkaline anion exchange membrane fuel cells (AAEMFCs) are reported. TMA functionalized LDPE-co-VBC offered the highest conductivity with values of up to 0.043 S cm-1. TMA functionalized electrodes showed superior cell performance in comparison to the other functional groups with a current density of 0.72 A cm-2 at 0.6 V and a peak power density of 478 mW cm-2 under air 1bar (gauge) The membrane exhibited good long term stability at temperatures up to 80 °C. A study of a water electrolyser with alkaline anion exchange membranes with CuxMn0.9-xCO2.1O4 (CuMnO) catalysts gave promising performance using a quaternary OH- ion ionomer binder based on polymethacrylate.
