3_05/2010Cover Picture: Quaternary Phosphonium-Based Polymers as Hydroxide Exchange Membranes (ChemSusChem 5/2010)

The cover picture shows the hope and possibility of hydroxide exchange membrane fuel cells as a promising alternative technology to power future vehicles. In their Communication on page 555, Y. S. Yan and coworkers describe the preparation and extraordinary performance of a new class of alkaline-stable and highly conductive hydroxide exchange membranes, using quaternary phosphonium hydroxide (QPOH) based polymers. The availability of these high-performance QPOH based membranes promises to make fuel cell technologies commercially viable for sustainable transportation as well as solar and wind energy storage.
