New Route to Sulfonic Acid Functional Polymers

Nathaniel Rebeck & Daniel Knauss
A new route to sulfonic acid functional polymershas been developed, where a protected sulfonic acid moiety is used to carryout a controlled and directed sulfonation of poly(aryl ethers). These polymers have a variety of applications, however, the main focus of this research is to produce ion-conducting membranes and study this ion conduction at a fundamental level. By employing a protected sulfonic acid functionality, the acid will be generated in a controlled manner after polymerization to...
