Alkaline anion exchange membrane fuel cell (AEMFC) is expected as a promising candidate for getting rid of the dependence of nobel metals, it will shows advantage on polymer electrolyte and cheap electrocatalyst options. However, the AEMFC needs high anion conductive membrane material  which should be stable under fuel cell operating condiction. Comparing with proton exchange membrane, anion conductive material is facing more chanllenges, i.e., low anion conductive rate, less stable in fuel cell conditions. The possiblity of composite anion exchange membranes were investigated in this work. Based on the in-house composite anion exchange membrane, membrane electrode assemblies were prepared. Measurements in a single cell, as well as in a stack, were impemented to evaluate the performance and the application possiblity in AEMFC.
