On the basis of results of the study, samples of chemically resistant track membranes have been obtained. The structure of the porous membrane has been formed via bombardment of a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) film with 41-MeV argon ions followed by thermal pretreatment and chemical etching. The PVDF ion track membrane can be used for manufacturing a proton-exchange membrane.
