giovanelli macrogiovaniCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Andrea Giovanelli for winning one of the best presentations at Macrogiovani 2023, an event organised by "Associazione Italiana di Scienze e Tecnologie delle Macromolecole" (AIM) in Catania. The title of his presentation was "Solid State NMR characterisation of a model Anion Exchange Membrane". The urgent need of a green transition requires new strategies for the production and conservation of energy.

Among different solutions, the so called green hydrogen is gaining extreme attention because of the high availability of water. Anion Exchange Membranes (AEMs) are vital components of alkaline water electrolyzers because they allow the transfer of hydroxyl ions from cathode to anode while acting as an electric insulator. His work focuses on the synthesis and Solid State NMR characterisation of Ion Exchange Membranes (IEMs) based on Polypropylene (PP) and Polybenzimidazole (PBI). These membranes can be applied in electrolyzers for hydrogen production and in high temperature fuel cells for its conversion back into energy.
