High performance LaNi1-xCoxO3-δ (x = 0.4 to 0.7) infiltrated oxygen electrodes for reversible solid oxide cells
Oxygen electrodes prepared by infiltration of yttria stabilized zirconia backbone with Ce0.8Gd0.2O1.95 barrier layer and LaNi1-xCoxO3-δ (x=0.4 to 0.7) catalyst for application in reversible solid oxide cells have been studied. The effect of temperature and Ni:Co ratio on their phase composition, microstructure and electrochemical properties are discussed. It was shown that oxygen electrodes infiltrated with LaNi0.5Co0.5O3-δ had...
Widespread commercialization of solid oxide fuel cells requires lowering its cost. It is generally accepted that to lower the cost of solid oxide fuel cells it is necessary to use metal alloys as interconnectors and, consequently, lower its operating temperature to slow down interconnectors degradation. As a result the area specific resistance of the cathodes should be lowered to sustain the performance of the cells. In order to...
La 0.6 Sr 0.4 Co 0.2 Fe 0.8 O 3-δ oxygen electrodes for solid oxide cells prepared by polymer precursor and nitrates solution infiltration into gadolinium doped ceria backbone
Infiltration is a method, which can be applied for the electrode preparation. In this paper oxygen electrode is prepared solely by the infiltration of La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3‐δ (LSCF) into Ce0.8Gd0.2O2-δ (CGO) backbone. The use a polymer precursor as an infiltrating medium, instead of an aqueous nitrate salts solution is presented. It is shown that the polymer forms the single-phase perovskite at 600 °C, contrary to the nitrates...
