The anion-conducting electrolyte membrane fuel cells (AEMFCs) have attracted considerable interest due to their significant advantages over proton conducting electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC). However, the AEMs degraded via the β-elimination reaction and the ring opening reaction of C2 position. So in this work, we synthesized the AEM based on a poly(p-(2-imidazoliumyl) styrene (2STZ)) grafts by radiation-induced grafting method to exclude β-hydrogen from the structure and protect C2 position.
