    New acid-base polymer blends based on sulfonated poly(phenylene oxide) (SPPO) as the proton-conducting component and poly(ether imide) (PEI) as the basic component were considered for use as proton-exchange membranes (PEM). The obtained blend membranes had a higher thermal stability and a higher...
