Performance stability and degradation mechanism of La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3-δ cathodes under solid oxide fuel cells operation conditions
MetadataShow full item record
The performance stability and degradation mechanism of La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3d (LSCF)cathodes and LSCF impregnated Gd0.1Ce0.9O2d (LSCF-GDC) cathodes are investigated undersolid oxide fuel cell operation conditions. LSCF and LSCF-GDC cathodes show initiallyperformance improvement but degrade under cathodic polarization treatment at 750 C for120 h. The results confirm the grain growth and agglomeration of LSCF and in particularGDC-LSCF cathodes as well as the formation of SrCoOx particles on the surface of LSCFunder cathodic polarization conditions. The direct observation of SrCoOx formation hasbeen made possible on the surface of dense LSCF electrode plate on GDC electrolyte. Theformation of SrCoOx is most likely due to the interaction between the segregated Sr and Cofrom LSCF lattice under polarization conditions. The formation of SrCoOx would contributeto the deterioration of the electrocatalytic activity of the LSCF-based electrodes for the O2reduction in addition to the agglomeration and microstructure coarsening
