The membrane in a galvanic cell was created with a composite made out of stinging nettle fibers and polypyrole. It was characterized with Thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and a Potentiostat (CV). The TGA data showed that the composite was effectively created, the SEM data showed that the polypyrole did evenly coat the fiber after a change in procedure, and the CV data showed that the composite could potentially allow the flow of electrons. These facts all together show that the composite has the physical characteristics that were wanted and that the electrochemical characteristics need to be looked in to more.
