Nanoparticles of Palladium, Platinum and Silver:Incoporation into Perfluoro-Sulfonated Membrane MF-4SK and Ionic Nafion

The purpose of the investigation is the study of the physico-chemical properties and electro-catalytic characteristics of the Nafion and MF-4SK membranes with the author’s nanoparticles (A. Revina, 2008) incorporated into the perfluoro- sulphonated cationic membranes. An important advance in the creation of new nano-composite materials with poly-functional activity is the inclusion of nanoparticles of various metals (Pd, Pt, Ag) in these membranes. Polymer ion exchange membranes represent widely applicable materials in various areas of modern nanotechnologies. The obtained nanocomposites on the base of included nanoparticles have the perspective properties and polyfunctional activity for the applications.
