La2NiO4+δ-based oxides, mixed ionic-electronic conductors with K2NiF4-type structure, have been considerably investigated in recent decades as electrode materials for advanced solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) due to their high electrical conductivity and oxidation reduction reaction (ORR) activity. In this study, La1.7Ca0.3Ni0.75Cu0.25O4+δ was investigated as a potential cathode on La0.9Sr0.1Ga0.8Mg0.2O3 electrolyte support. Furthermore, La1.7Ca0.3Ni0.75Cu0.25O4+δ was examined on thin Ce0.8Gd0.2O2 (GDC) electrolyte with Ni-GDC anode support for intermediate temperature SOFCs (IT-SOFCs). La1.7Ca0.3Ni0.75Cu0.25O4-δ cathode with gadolinium doped ceria (GDC) electrolyte and NiO-GDC anode support showed a maximum power density of 0.75 W/cm2 in H2 and lower polarization resistance, Rp (2), in impedance spectroscopy at 700°C.
