A simple aqueous-processable alkaline ionomer (amenable to scale-up) has been developed for enhancing electrode/electrolyte interfaces in clean energy devices (e.g. alkaline polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells). The water uptake of the alkaline ionomer is tuneable allowing its use as a tool for fundamental studies into these interfaces. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
