Abstract [en]

A universal mold casting approach for the preparation of cation-exchange membranes (CEMs) and anion-exchange membranes (AEMs) with ultrahigh ion-exchange capacities (IECs) is developed based on in situ cross-linking polymerization of acrylic acid (AA) and 2-vinylpyridine (2VP), respectively. This new method produced ultrahigh IECs of 7.88 mequiv g(-1) for CEM and 6.27 mequiv g(-1) for AEM, which are 8.8 and 7.0 times that (0.89 mequiv g(-1)) of Nafion 117, respectively. Also, the prepared membranes demonstrate excellent thermal and chemical stability and acceptable conductivity. As a consequence, the membranes show relatively high performance for ion-exchange application and methanol barrier, exhibiting ion permeabilities of 2.06 x 10(-7) cm(2) s(-1) for Na+, 2.57 x 10(-7) cm(2) s(-1) for Ca2+, 1.45 x 10(-7) cm(2) s(-1) for Cu2+ regarding CEMs, and 7.72 x 10(-7) cm(2) s(-1) for methanol regarding AEMs. These results indicate that the CEMs and AEMs fabricated from the universal mold casting approach are promising candidates for targeting ultrahigh ion-exchange capacity membranes.
