Preparation of Ni/YSZ Anode Material Using Gel-Tape Casting and Performance Analysis
Ni/YSZ cermet is the most widely used anode material for solid oxide fuel cell. In this paper, the NiO/YSZ green body was prepared by gel-tape casting, using 15%wt. starch as pore-forming agent, in the mixed polyvinyl alcohol and acrylamide systems. Ni/YSZ anode material was obtained after sintered at 1450°C for 2h and reduced at 800°C in H2 atmosphere for 4h. The anode porosity, XRD, TGA and microstructures were measured. YSZ formed a continuous network structure and Ni particles were dispersed homogeneously in the YSZ network. It is suitable to fabrication of anode material for solid oxide fuel cell.
