Advanced synthesis of materials for intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells

Solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) technology has a substantial potential in the application of clean and efficient electric power generation. However, the widespread utilization of SOFCs has not been realized because the cost associated with cell fabrication, materials and maintenance is still too high. To increase its competitiveness, lowering the operation temperature to the intermediate range of around 500–800 °C is one of the main goals in current SOFCs research.
