Synthesis and Properties of LST-X%Bi2O3 Anode Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Ceramic systems of template explains and demonstrates how to prepare your camera-ready Ceramic systems of Bi2O3 and La-doped SrTiO3 (LST) solid mixtures La0.2Sr0.8TiO3–x%Bi2O3 (x = 0, 20, 25, 30, 35) are prepared and explored as possible anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells. It is shown that the conductivity of La0.2Sr0.8TiO3–x%Bi2O3 composites increases from 0.15 to 1.4 S cm−1 in 97%H2 +3%H2O at 800°C with increasing the content of Bi2O3. Electrochemical impedance spectra indicated that the addition of Bi2O3 into LST can significantly reduce the fuel cell’s polarization and refine the grains and increase the triple phase boundary, leading to a better performance of the fuel cells. The results suggest potential applications of LST–x%Bi2O3 composite as SOFC anode materials.
