- ... Organic/inorganic membranes based on sulfonated poly(vinyl alcohol) (s-PVA) and sulfonated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (s-MWNTs) nanocomposite membranes (SPVA) with various compositions were prepared for use as proton exchange membranes in direct membrane fuel cells (DMFCs). The SPVA membranes were cross-linked with both glutaraldehyde and s-MWNTs to reduce the level of water (methanol) uptake. ...
