The extensive implementation of hydrogen-powered technology today is limited by a number of fundamental problems, related to materials research. Fuel-cell hydrogen conversion technology requires proton conducting materials with high conductivity at intermediate temperature range up to 120 ºC. The development of such materials remains challenging because the proton transport of many promising candidates is based on extended microstructures of water molecules, which deteriorate at temperatures above the boiling point. Here we show the impregnation of mesoporous metal-organic framework MIL-101 by non-volatile acids H2SO4 and H3PO4. Such simple approach affords solid materials with potent proton conducting properties at moderate temperatures, which is critically important for the proper function of the on-board automobile fuel cells. The proton conductivities of the H2SO4@MIL-101 and H3PO4@MIL-101 at T = 150 ºC and low humidity outperform any other MOF-based materials and could be compared with the best proton conductors, such as Nafion.
