Proton & Cation Exchange Membrane
Pemion™ is the new proton and cation exchange membrane and polymer products (PEM & CEM) in advanced stages of development at Ionomr. Pemion™ represents a fundamental shift in the approach to proton exchange technology through its migration from Perfluorinated Sulfonic Acid (PFSA) chemistry to hydrocarbon materials, providing lower gas crossover and eliminating environmental concerns at considerably higher performance.
Unlike their PFSA counterparts, our hydrocarbon products have substantially reduced toxicity and environmental impact during both manufacturing and disposal. Additionally, Pemion boasts one of the highest room temperature conductivities available, while maintaining its mechanical stability (Adamski et al., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2017, 56, 1 – 5) for an improved total efficiency and longer system life.
