Abstract
The second part of thesis focuses on the relationship between structure of ionic polymers and ion transport properties. Ionic group functionalized polymers may serve as polymer electrolyte membranes, which are playing a crucial role in electrochemical energy conversion and storage system such as polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. Comparison studies based on a series of different structures of poly(aryl alkylene)s will be discussed to show how those structural variations can impact ion conductivity and fuel cell membrane property. The lessons from this study will suggest a new design strategy to improve the performance of future generation polymer electrolyte materials.
