Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

NH4PO3-PTFE inorganic-organic composite electrolytes were prepared. Their phase compositions, thermal stability and morphologies were investigated. The composites obtained demonstrate improved thermal stability comparing with commercial NH4PO3. The morphology of pellets under the same conditions shows the smoother and denser surface with more PTFE content added. The conductivity was measured by ac impedance spectroscopy under different atmospheres. The composites were found to exhibit a higher conductivity in humid 5% H-2/Ar compared with open air atmosphere. A maximum conductivity of 2.3 mS/cm is obtained at 250 degrees C for NH4PO3-PTFE (volume ratio = 2:1) sample in humid 5% H-2/Ar.
