OMS Lab, Incheon National University

Our group (OMS Lab) is focussed on the development of novel polymer electrolytes for PEMFC, DMFC and AEMFC.

The key of our research is to use the crosslinking (both chemical and physical) to produce very stable polymer systems. In order to minimize the reduction in ion (proton or hydroxide) conductivity, we have applied ‘terminal-crosslinking’, ‘self-crosslinking’ and ‘self-aggregating’.

The polymer electrolyte membranes developed by these concepts showed promising results and we continue to develop new polymer electrolytes for fuel cell applications.
