AbstractThis paper shows a comparison of proton conductivity measurement of NafionŽ membrane for direct methanol fuel cell application. The experimental study was carried out in order to compare the proton conductivity of the polymer membrane using AC impedance technique, in which the specimens were under two different environments, under hydrated and acidic solution and under actual DMFC operation. Two methods were used in this study comprising of two-electrode method and measurement in DMFC a single cell. Experiments were carried out under temperature of 30 C - 70 C.
