Abstract

Polyacid-functionalized inorganic mesoporous materials have attracted considerable interest as catalysts, permselective molecular sieves or drug carriers. Despite their great interest, their synthesis into ordered mesostructures incorporating polyacids densely and homogeneously distributed in the mesopores, is a challenge. Moreover, their properties as conductors for energy applications remain completely unexplored. Here we report an efficient, one-shot environmentally friendly synthesis route to prepare ordered mesoporous silica functionalized with strong polyacids, which exhibits excellent proton conductivity. We used polyion electrostatic complex micelles as structure-directing, functionalizing and pore-generating agents to obtain a material of remarkable textural and functional quality. It presents large and ordered mesopores hosting monodisperse polyacid chains corresponding to a dense and homogeneous functionalization of 1.2 mmolSO 3 H.gSiO 2-1 and a function density of 1 SO3H per nm 3 of mesopore volume. Overcoming the performance-limiting inhomogeneities, we designed a superprotonic conductor, while the high value of the conductivity, 0.024 S cm-1 at 363 K/95% relative humidity, was maintained at least 7 days.
