The morphology and phase separation of polymers within a fuel cell membrane plays a large role in its performance. This work compares block and random poly(phenylene oxide) copolymers in relation to their conductivity and water uptake as a function of ion exchange capacity. The block copolymers perform significantly better than the random analogs. The high conductivity suggests that the morphology is improved for ion conduction in the block copolymers.
