Paper Abstract

EVOH-based comb ionic polymer (EVOH-g-nSPEG) was prepared by the sulfonation reaction of poly(ethylene-co-vinyl alcohol) (EVOH) and 1,3-sulfonic acid propiolactone. The EVOH-g-nSPEG composites with different counter ions and metal (IPMC-M) were prepared through the method of solution casting and penetration-reduction method (chemical deposition), respectively. The micro-morphology of IPMC-Na was determined by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The maximum tip displacement was determined by electrode deformation testing equipment, and the relationship between input voltage and electrochemical activity was evaluated by cyclic voltammetry. The results showed that the smoothness and compactness of IPMC surface electrode were improved when using secondary penetration-reduction technology. The tip displacement of IPMC-M(H, Li, Na, K) increased with the input voltage increasing and reached to its maximum value when the input voltage being 4.2~4.4 V. The relationship of the tip response time was TLi>TNa>TK>TH under the same input voltage. The tip response time of IPMC containing the same counter ion decreased with the input voltage increased.
