Paper Abstract

We describe the fabrication of ionic polymer-meal composites (IPMCs) containing Cu/Ni electrode as an electrode material and ionic liquid as an electrolyte. Cu/Ni is notorious for vulnerability to oxidation and acid. The authors have investigated best candidate of ionic liquids for this vulnerable electrode. This new IPMC shows increased displacement and blocking force compared to that of conventional IPMC containing Pt electrode and ionic liquid due to increased stiffness of resulting IPMC and size effect of mobile cations. In this research, the effect of ionic liquid was investigated by monitoring displacement and blocking force of IPMCs depending on the type of ionic liquids.
