(Chemical Equation Presented) In the membrane: A simple but effective approach to improving the conducting properties of polymer electrolyte membranes has been developed by incorporating acid-functionalized polysilsesquioxane (SiOPS). The nanocomposite membranes showed 30 times higher proton conductivity than that of the original membrane and may find application in sensors, batteries, and most likely fuel cells.
