Effect of fluorite-like or perovskite-like complex oxide promoters and Pd on the performance of Ni/8YSZ and Ni/ScSZ anode materials in CH4 steam reforming (SR) or selective oxidation (SO) by O-2 into syngas was studied. The spatial uniformity of dopants distribution in composites was controlled by TEM combined with EDX analysis, while the lattice oxygen mobility and reactivity were estimated by CH4 and H-2 temperature-programmed reduction (TPR). The oxide promoters suppress the coke deposition even at stoichiometric H2O/CH4 ratio, while doping by Pd ensures a good performance at moderate (similar to 550 degrees C) temperatures required for the Intermediate -Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (IT SOFC) operation.
