Towards better anion exchange membranes.
Anion exchange membranes (AEMs) refer to polymers in the membrane shape, having positively charged groups (fixed groups) alongside the polymer chain, which have aroused intense scholar interest. AEMs serve a critical component in various electrochemical systems/devices [1-5]. Currently, increasing the hydroxide conductivity and enhancing the chemical stability of AEMs are the most challenging. Herein, I want to highlight endeavors in fabricating chemically stable and highly conductive AEMs to bring this discussion to a deeper level.Author(s): Tongwen Xu
