I am looking into using a proton exchange membrane for a bio-energy cell experiment. Previous scholars have been using Nafion as a PEM to place between the anode and cathode (air-cathode). the thickness of the material is about (7-mil). I was wondering, would the ion transfer rate get better if I used a thinner version of the same material due to a decrease of distance! or would it cause electrons to go through!
I would really appreciate it if someone can point me.
