Proton conductive materials become important for their utility to electrolytes of fuel cells or sensors. The proton conductivity of a one-dimensional coordination polymer, ferrous oxalate dihydrate, was evaluated and found to show 1.3 mS cm-1 at ambient temperature. The proton conductivity of this compound is extremely high at ambient temperature without any strong acidic group, and this result is suggestive of new proton conductive materials consisting of coordination polymers.
