This project focus on introducing in research the industrial aspect by combining the nanotechnologies and innovative approach.  It is combining the polymer (polyetheretherketone) with inorganic nanoparticles (zirconia) and ionic liquids. The resulting membrane is suitable to perform in low and medium hydrogen fuel cells and most likely in future devices for direct conversion of biofuel into electricity.

The technology for developing of the method of producing polymer membranes with non-heatable nanomaterial additives is offered. It is achieved by combining the polymer (polyetheretherketone) with inorganic nanoparticles (zirconia) and ionic liquids. The resulting basic polymer with inorganic nanoparticles is suitable for methanol fuel cells. The method is adapted for spin-coating type methods or spray methods, because the crystalline polymers are not suitable for traditional hot-pressing methods. 

This method is suitable for manufacturing process with non-heatable nanomaterial additives. The strength of the polymer made by this technology is greater than polymers made by classic synthesized methods.
