Advanced Porous Materials and Processes for the Next Generation of Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) Electrolysers

Project: Research

Project Details


Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are novel porous materials with ordered pore structures, high surface areas, and customisable designs, making them potential electrocatalysts for anion exchange membrane water electrolysers (AEMWE). However, their adoption in AEMWE is limited by their low conductivity due to the insulating nature of organic ligands. This project proposes overcoming this limitation through the fabrication of advanced, highly porous Ni-rich MOFs, therefore establishing AEMWE as a competitive alternative to proton exchange membrane electrolysers (PEMWE).
