Abstract

The diffusion of 1H in the fast protonic conductor H(UO2PO4) · 4H2O has been investigated as a function of temperature by employing pulsed field gradient NMR measurements. In the light of the present diffusion results and published conductivity observations on the same compound, it is likely that protonic diffusion and conductivity in this material occur by the same mechanism. Possible mechanistic processes for the proton motion in this material which are consistent with the activation energy for protonic diffusion found in this study are briefly discussed.
