The proposal describes a project dedicated to development of highly conductive and mechanically durable composite anion exchange membranes by integration of mechanically stable cross-linked electrospun nanofiber network with softer highly conductive polymer phase. Various hydroxide conductive polymers will be synthesized and characterized. The extraordinary stable at alkaline media and elevated temperature nanofiber network will be designed and developed as backbone for durable composite membrane and to be loaded by conductive polymer phase. Computer simulation will be performed in order to study correlations between functional groups, microstructure and ion mobility.
