Nanosized Ce0.8Gd0.05Y0.15O1.9 powders were synthesized using glycine nitrate process for use as the electrolyte of intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells. The powders were characterized by simultaneous thermogravimetry analysis (TGA) and differential thermal analysis (DTA), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The XRD pattern indicated that the powders exhibited a single phase with cubic fluorite structure. The TEM studies showed that the calcined powders exhibited an almost spherical morphology and the mean size of the particles was 30nm, which is in agreement with the calculated result of XRD.
