In this work, we develop a new type of composite material that combines both electrocatalytic and ionic properties, by doping a silver metal catalyst with an anion-conducting ionomer at the molecular level. We show that ionomer entrapment into the silver metallic structure is possible, imparting unique properties to the catalytic character of the metallic silver. The novel composite material is tested as the cathode electrode of fuel cells, showing significant improvement in cell performance as compared with the undoped counterpart. This new type of material may then replace the current design of electrodes in advanced fuel cells or other electrochemical devices. The possibility to merge different properties into one composite material by molecular entrapment in metals can open the way to new materials, leading to unexplored fields and applications.
