Abstract

Silica particles coated with proton conductive layers composed of block copolymers were prepared by reversible additionfragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization with particles (PwP). The experimental results verified the successful formation of poly(acrylic acid)-b-polystyrene-coated silica particles via RAFT PwP. The new particles can be applied in novel filler in electrolyte membranes for polymer electrolyte fuel cells.
