Heteropolyacids as protonic conductors
Protonic conductors belong to the conductors whose charge carriers are proton and protonic entities: H+, OH-, H2O, [H(H2O)(n)](+). A small group of these compounds have exceptionally high proton conductivity, Heteropolyacids with respect to their conductivity of (1-100) x 10(-3) Scm(-1) belong to the superionic conductors at room temperature, They have pronounced catalytic properties. In order to understand the mechanism of conductivity it is necessary to study the structure and dynamic properties of protonic species as charge carriers.
