Abstract

La0.2Sr0.25Ca0.45TiO3 is a carefully selected composition to provide optimal ceramic and electrical characteristics for use as an anode support in solid oxide fuel cells. In this study we focus on the process optimization and characterization of A-site deficient perovskite, La0.2Sr0.25Ca0.45TiO3 (LSCTA-), powders prepared via a solution method to be integrated into the SOFC anode supports. A Pechini method has been applied to successfully produce single phase perovskite at 900 °C. Processing conditions have been modified to yield a powder that displays a similar sintering profile to commercial yttria stabilised zirconia. The conductivity behavior of porous bodies under redox has been investigated showing a 2 stage process in both oxidation and reduction cycling that exhibits strong reversibility. For the reduction process, addition of impregnated ceria reduces the onset delay period and increases the apparent rate constant, k values, by 30–50% for both stages. The addition of ceria had less influence on the oxidation kinetics, although the conductivity values of both oxidised and reduced porous bodies were enhanced.
