- ... Competition between homogeneous and heterogeneous ion-exchange membranes (IEMs) lasts for decades. Low fraction of conductive surface area, Θ, of IEMs causes lower limiting current density, higher voltage and water splitting rate at a same average current density. On the other hand, heterogeneous IEMs are less costly. Additionally, as it was found recently, electrically heterogeneous surface enhan ...
