Sustainion anion exchange membranes from Dioxide Materials are typically supplied in a dry, chloride form supported on a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) liner. They consequently have to be converted to the hydroxide form by exposing them to a strong base. It is recommended that the membrane be soaked in a large bath of 1M KOH for 24–48 hours in order to … Read More
Water electrolyzers are being developed as a way of storing renewable energy, as a route to creating hydrogen for fuel cell cars and as a route to renewable fuels and chemicals. Dioxide Materials has been enabling water electrolysis, making low cost hydrogen without using precious metals that can achieve high current densities. On January 16, 2019, a Dioxide Materials alkaline … Read More
