Abstract

XRD, XPS and electrochemical studies show clear evidence of chemical interaction under oxidising and reducing conditions between YSZ and CuO, both components of a widely studied anode material for high performance solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The aim of this work is to identify and verify the nature of this interaction and find means to prevent its formation during the fabrication process of a fuel cell.
