Abstract

Extensive transport and modeling studies have been performed on a series of polymers based on the benzyltrimethylamonium cations. We have created a realistic reactive model of solvated hydroxide that has interesting properties in the polymer matrix. In ordered diblock polymers we have strong theoretical evidence for a heterogeneous distribution of water across the channel. Fluoride is used as a non-reactive surrogate for hydroxide to increase the computational efficiency of transport calculations that can be performed. In addition to these studies we are discovering new base stable processable robust polymer backbones and cations. These bulky cations seem to dramatically affect the transport properties of the anions showing a VTF rather than an Arrhenius behavior with temperature.
