Abstract

A new constitutive model relating proton conductivity to water content in a polymer electrolyte or membrane is presented. Our constitutive model is based on Faraday's law and the Nernst-Einstein equation; and it depends on the molar volumes of dry membrane and water but otherwise requires no adjustable parameters. We derive our constitutive model in two different ways. Predictions of proton conductivity as a function of membrane water content computed from our constitutive model are compared with that from a representative correlation and other models as well as experimental data from the literature and those obtained in our laboratory using a 4-point probe.
