A new class of materials called ionic polymer–polymer composites has been investigated to demonstrate the sensingand acting capabilities of these all-organic structures. Sampleshave been realized by covering Nafion membranes, with Orgacon3040 conducting polymer as electrode material. Membraneswhose electrodes were manufactured using the drop-casting techniqueexhibited the best electromechanical performances. Sensorshave been tested in a dedicated experimental setup to modeltheir electromechanical transduction behavior. Thus, the obtainedmodel has been validated.

Abstract

A new class of materials called ionic polymer–polymer composites has been investigated to demonstrate the sensingand acting capabilities of these all-organic structures. Sampleshave been realized by covering Nafion membranes, with Orgacon3040 conducting polymer as electrode material. Membraneswhose electrodes were manufactured using the drop-casting techniqueexhibited the best electromechanical performances. Sensorshave been tested in a dedicated experimental setup to modeltheir electromechanical transduction behavior. Thus, the obtainedmodel has been validated.
