Organic-inorganic membranes are worldwide under investigation with the purpose of achieving reduced methanol crossover for direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) and increasing the proton conductivity at temperatures higher than 100°C in hydrogen fuel cells. The advantages and disadvantages of these membranes are discussed here with membrane examples containing aerosol, layered silicates, and modified silica as passive fillers as well as zirconium phosphate and heteropolyacids as conductive fillers.
