Sm0.5Sr0.5CoO3(SSC)-La0.8Sr0.2Ga0.8Mg0.15Co0.05O3(LSGMC5) composite cathodes for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells were prepared using wet-chemistry method. The SSC powders were prepared using the glycine-nitrate method and the LSGMC5 powders were synthesized using the citrate method. The XRD pattern of SSC powders calcined at temperatures higher than 1223 K corresponded to a desired perovskite structure. With the increase in calcining temperature, the size of the SSC particles increased, which leaded to a weak adhesion to the electrolyte for corresponding electrodes. The performance of the SSC-LSGMC5 composite electrodes depended strongly on the calcining temperature of SSC powders, and the electrodes based on SSC calcined at 1223 K exhibited the lowest ohmic resistance and polarization resistance. The overpotential at 973 K in oxygen under 1 A . cm(-2) current density was as low as 0.077 V, which was much lower than that of electrodes prepared using solid-state reaction.
