Abstract

Thermal stability, hydration and mechanical properties of thermally cross-linked Sulfonated Aromatic Polymers (SAP) with high ionic exchange capacity (IEC) were measured and compared to untreated samples. The formation of cross-linking greatly stabilizes SAP in terms of thermal, mechanical, and hydrolytic degradation: they can resist in water even at a temperature of 145 °C with improved mechanical properties. Acid-base titration and FTIR spectra consistently indicate that SAP microstructure stabilization is related to cross-linking of the polymer chains by SO2 bridges, which is promoted by temperature.
