Problem statement: In this paper we focus on discussing the mechanical properties of electrospun Nafion-PAA membranes. Approach: We prepared solutions of varying composition ratios of Nafion and PAA in order to create the membranes using the electrospinning process. After the confection of the membranes they were studied using SEM Microscopy and various methods of mechanical properties determination. Results: Results have determined that the 80%Nafion/20%PAA heat treated post compacted membranes have the best water uptake. Conclusion: The membranes produced are superior to those commercially produced in regards to water uptake, especially those of Order 1.
