Abstract: Design of polymeric membranes for fuel cells application requires suitable selection and modification of polymers. This review accounts the various polymeric membranes available for use in fuel cells, advantages of sulphonation of polymers, various sulphonation methods and the characterization techniques. Presently, SPEEK finds extensive application as polymeric membrane in fuel cells. The advantages of SPEEK include good mechanical properties, thermal stability, and toughness and some conductivity depending on degree of sulphonation.
