Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) works at high temperature and is normally used in stationary devices which are of wide interest in the world market. The most currently SOFC developers utilize yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) as electrolyte, strontium-doped lanthanum manganite (LSM) as cathode and a Ni/YSZ cermet obtained from NiO/YSZ in situ reduction as anode. The electrode performance is directly influenced by powder grain sizes, homogeneity, purity, and amount of Ni. Although physical mixture is a simpler procedure it hardly gives homogeneous materials as suitable to SOFC applications. Alternative chemical methods are sol-gel, impregnation and those derived from Pechini route. The present work compares thermal stability and hydrogen reducibility of NiO/YSZ composites prepared by impregnation (I), Pechini (P) and physical mixture (PM) procedures.
