Studying an Ion-Conducting Polymer in the Presence of FeCl3
Team: Juan Pino, Louise Chen, Howard Katz
Program: Materials Science and Engineering
a highly amorphous polymer that consists of a charged side group and a counterion whereby the latter is the only charge carrier in the polymer matrix, is studied to evaluate the ionic conductivity and ionic Seebeck effect. In addition, we intend to change the behavior of the Seebeck effect and ionic conductivity with the addition of FeCl3 instead of water to the polymer matrix.
