Abstract

A novel and facile route to control the porosity of materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) applications has been developed through the simple combination of oxide powders, polyvinyl alcohol and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) microspheres. This method allows the microstructure to be optimised improving the performances of SOFC electrode materials.
