Poly(2,5-benzimidazole) (ab-PBI) was prepared from 3，4-diaminobenzoic acid via a polymerisation reaction. The obtained polymer exhibits excellent thermal stability in a temperature range ….. The membrane of ab-PBI when doped with phosphoric acid at room temperaturepresents high proton conductivity in a wide temperature range.. The conductivity of the acid doped ab-PBI membranes was studied in a temperature range of 80oC to 200oC under different relative humidity and with different acid doping levels. PEMFC test results indicated that the fuel cell could be operated at temperatures up to 200oC with phosphoric acid doped ab-PBI as the electrolyte under atmospheric pressure at 200°C without humidification.
