Proton Conduction in Cerium- and Zirconium-Based Perovskite Oxides

Part of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Energy book series (FCHY)

Some perovskite-type oxides show protonic conduction and are useful for hydrogen-related electrochemical devices, including application to solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Iwahara et al. reported protonic conductivity of strontium-cerate-based perovskite-type oxides in 1981 [1]. Since that time, various perovskite-type proton-conducting oxides have been found. For use of the proton-conducting perovskite oxides, we should understand not only their merits but also their weak points. This chapter concerns the proton-conducting properties of typical cerium- and zirconium-containing perovskite oxides from the points of view of conductivity, stability, electrode affinity, and dopant effect. Mixed conduction occurring in a special composition of the perovskite oxide is also introduced.
